1.5        Abstract

Originally there was an effort to harmonize a list of standards and specifications that was in use by the NASA Earth Science community. These specifications included the Directory Interchange Format (DIF), Earth Observing System (EOS) Clearing House (ECHO) 10, Service Entry Resource Format (SERF), and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) 19115-2. The result of the harmonization effort was the Unified Metadata Model (UMM). This document - the UMM-Common document - describes the compilation of elements that are shared among the UMM profiles which include: collections, granules, services, visualizations, variables, and documents. Implementers of Earth Science Data and Information System's (ESDIS) CMR, its clients, and data providers should reference this document and the UMM as a guide while implementing the system, its clients, or generating metadata. Links to more information about the standards and specifications used in this document can be found in appendix C.

 

1.6        Introduction

Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) generates, archives, and distributes enormous amounts of Earth Science data, which in turn are made available to the science community and the public at large. To aid in the search and discovery process, these data must be organized and cataloged. Accurate, complete, and consistent metadata are required for efficient accessibility.   To improve the quality and consistency among its metadata holdings, EOSDIS has developed a model describing metadata that it archives and maintains. This model documents elements that may be represented across various metadata standards and unifies them through core elements useful for discovery. This unified model, aptly named the Unified Metadata Model (UMM), was developed as part of the EOSDIS Metadata Architecture Studies (MAS I and II) conducted between 2012 and 2013. The UMM will be used by the CMR and will drive search and retrieval of metadata cataloged within that system.

 

This document describes common elements used in various UMM reference profiles, which include: collections, granules, services, visualizations, variables, and documents. For each element in this document, the following information is provided:

  • element specification
  • description
  • profile utilization
  • cardinality
  • analysis
  • mapping to existing standards
  • examples
  • future recommendations

 

1.7        Feedback

Questions, comments and recommendations on the contents of this document should be directed to support@earthdata.nasa.gov.

 

1.8        Document Conventions

This document contains UMM common elements, each of which contains the following components:

 

  • Element Name: Provides the element name.
  • Element Specification: Provides the sub-elements, cardinality of the sub-elements within (), any valid values within <>, applicable comments and notes within {}, and any other major factors that make up the element.  
  • Description: Provides background information on the purpose of the element and its intended use. Furthermore, any information about the element's current usage, recommendations for usage, or unresolved issues is also documented here.   The term "resource" is also used mainly in the description section though it can be used elsewhere and it is meant to denote collections, granules, services, visualizations, variables, documents, etc.
  • Profile Utilization: Lists which profiles use the specific element.
  • Cardinality: Indicates the expectation of counts for this element, summarized in Table 1.
  • Analysis: Gives an analysis of this element where needed and describes any necessary reconciliation.
  • Mapping: Gives Extensible Markup Language (XML) Path Language (XPath) mappings for this element to the elements in other specifications. This can be considered as the "crosswalk" for this element. For a link to more information about XPaths please see appendix C.
  • Examples: XML snippets from "cross-walked" data standards documenting sample values for the element. Whenever possible, a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) to the specific collection or service used for the metadata snippet, is provided.
  • Recommendations: Provides any future recommendations for the element.

1.9.2        Metadata Date

Element Specification

MetadataDate/Date     (1)
MetadataDate/Type     (1)     <"CREATE", "UPDATE", "DELETE", "REVIEW">

 

Description

There are three types of dates used in the UMM profiles:

  • Dates that concern the metadata record - called Metadata Dates in this document.
  • Dates that concern the resource itself (collections, granules, services, etc.) - called Data Dates in this document.
  • Dates that describe the time period in which the data set was acquired - called Temporal Extent in this document.

 

Of these three date types this element is comprised of dates for when the metadata was created, last revised, planned for future review, or planned for deletion. For dates related to the actual data or resource, the element Data Date should be used. For dates that describe the acquisition period the Temporal Extent element should be used.

<Summary>
  <Abstract>The Lambert Glacier Basin (LGB) series of five oversnow traverses were conducted from 1989-95. Ten metre depth (10 m) firn temperatures, as a proxy indicator of annual mean surface temperature at a site, were recorded approximately every 30 km along the 2014 km main traverse route from LGB00 (68.6543 S, 61.1201 E) near Mawson Station, to LGB72 (69.9209 S, 76.4933 E) near Davis Station.

10 m depth firn temperatures were recorded manually in field notebooks and the data transferred to spreadsheet files (MS Excel).

Summary data (30 km spatial resolution) can be obtained from CRC Research Note No.09 &amp;Surface Mass Balance and Snow Surface Properties from the Lambert Glacier Basin Traverses 1990-94&amp;.

This work was completed as part of ASAC projects 3 and 2216.

Some of this data have been stored in a very old format.   The majority of files have been updated to current formats, but some files (kaleidograph files in particular) were not able to be modified due to a lack of appropriate software.   However, these files are simply figures, and can be regernerated from the raw data (also provided).

<Summary>
      <Abstract>The Atmospheric Infrared Sounder (AIRS) is a grating spectrometer (R = 1200) aboard the second Earth Observing System (EOS) polar-orbiting platform, EOS Aqua. In combination with the Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit (AMSU) and the Humidity Sounder for Brazil (HSB), AIRS constitutes an innovative atmospheric sounding group of visible, infrared, and microwave sensors. The AIRS Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Standard Retrieval Product consists of retrieved estimates of CO2, plus estimates of the errors associated with the retrieval. In contrast to AIRX2RET, the horizontal resolution of this standard product is about 110 km (1x1 degree). An AIRS granule has been set as 6 minutes of data, 15 footprints cross track by 22 lines along track.</Abstract>

<Summary><Abstract>The Minnesota Public Health Data Access Portal (also called the Data Access Portal) provides access to data on a variety of environmental and health topics. Minnesota Public Health Data Access (MNPH Data Access) is an online query and information system designed to provide public access to Minnesota data about health, the environment, and other risk factors that may impact public health. Each topic area on the portal has a web page with information and details about the data. This page identifies the source of the data, as well as the data's strengths and limitations.

 

Minnesota Public Health Data Access (the Data Access portal) is updated regularly to include new features and data (as data are available). The portal includes data on air quality, asthma, birth defects, cancer, carbon monoxide poisoning, chemicals in people: biomonitoring, childhood immunizations, childhood lead poisoning, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, drinking water quality, environmental tobacco smoke, health insurance, heart attacks, heat-related illness, obesity, poverty & income, reproductive & birth outcomes, and smoking. Some of the data are available in mapped format.</Abstract>

1.9.7        Data Date

Element Specification

DataDate/Date     (1)
DataDate/Type     (1)     <"CREATE", "UPDATE", "DELETE", "REVIEW">

 

Description

There are three types of dates used in the UMM profiles:

  • Dates that concern the metadata record - called Metadata Dates in this document.
  • Dates that concern the resource itself (collections, granules, services, etc.) - called Data Dates in this document.
  • Dates that describe the time period in which the data set was acquired - called Temporal Extent in this document.

 

Of these three date types this element is comprised of dates for when the data or resource itself changed in some way. It does not include the first or third bullets that describe Metadata Dates or Temporal Extent. This element is made of two sub-elements, type and date. The type describes what the date represents: a future review, when the resource was created, last updated, or planned for deletion.   The date describes when the resource had an action performed on it or when an action on it will occur as described by the type element.

Analysis

The Creation, Last Revision, Future Review, and Planned Deletion dates exist in various places in the different standards.


All data dates have been consolidated under this element. They will be typed and will all be represented by the ISO 8601 date and time conventions as part of the reconciliation process. In DIF 10 both the metadata and data dates are located under the DIF/Metadata_Dates element. The difference is that the sub-elements of Metadata_Creation, Metadata_Last_Revision, Metadata_Future_Review, and Metadata_Delete describe the metadata dates and the sub-elements of Data_Creation, Data_Last_Revision, Data_Future_Review, Data_Delete describe the resource dates.

Description

This element describes any resource-related URLs that include project home pages, resource information pages, services, related data, archives/servers, metadata extensions, direct links to online software packages, web mapping services, links to images, documents, or other data. When filling out this element URLContentType, Type are required - Description and Subtype are optional. If the URLContentType is "DistributionURL" and the Type is "GET DATA", then the RelatedURL/GetData sub-elements are also filled out. If the URLContentType is "DistributionURL" and the Type is "GET SERVICE", then the RelatedURL/GetService sub-elements are also filled out.  

      RelatedURL - contains URLs to data or services (e.g. Distribution URLs).

      GetData - information about the data (e.g. format, size, units, fees, checksum).

      GetService - contains URIs to data via services and information about the data and service (e.g. mime type, protocol, name, data IDs, data type).

The valid values for Type and Subtype were derived and tailored from the GCMD RelatedURL Type and Subtype elements. We looked at these values, categorized them, removed duplicates, and tailored them while preserving the mapping between the type and sub-type. It is our intent to work with GCMD and get back to a single set of values that can be controlled through the KMS.

 

Note: The Distribution class has now been subsumed into the GetData class.

 

Some use Examples:

I have a DAAC Home page that I would like to put into the metadata:

RelatedURL/URL = http://www.daachomepage.gov

RelatedURL/Description = The DAAC home page

RelatedURL/URLContentType = DataCenterURL

RelatedURL/Type = HOME PAGE

RelatedURL/Subtype =

 

I have a file that I can distribute to whomever is interested:

RelatedURL/GetData/Format = application/msword

RelatedURL/GetData/Size = 40

RelatedURL/GetData/Unit = MB

RelatedURL/GetData/Fees = 0

RelatedURL/GetData/Checksum = f5d30a4f2

Related online resource information is found in both GCMD and ECHO.  

 

ECHO (ECHO10) has OnlineAccessURL, OnlineResource, AssociatedBrowseImages, and AssociatedBrowseImageURLs:

• OnlineAccessURL - stores the online URL(s) for present granules. Those URLs either provide the site where granule data can be obtained or instruct the user on how to obtain the granule data.

• AssociatedBrowseImageURLS - contains URLs to browse imagery.

 

GCMD (DIF 9/10) has RelatedURL and MultimediaSample:

• Related_URL - element provides both documentation and dataset links and they are differentiated by the Related_URL/URLContentType sub-element. This value is hierarchical using type and sub type elements to organize the kinds of URLs associated with collection metadata.

• Multimedia_Sample - allows the author to provide information that will enable the display of a sample image, movie, or sound clip within the DIF 9/10.

  <Quality>The dates provided in temporal coverage are approximate only.   Years are correct.

See the referenced paper for full details on steps taken to ensure quality of data.

To assess extraction efficiency for a range of sediment types, four marine sediments were analysed in detail.   Two international certified reference materials (CRMs) and two well-characterised Antarctic sediments were chosen to compare and contrast moderately to strongly contaminated samples (based on total metal digest), with clean samples of similar matrices.   One CRM was an uncontaminated continental shelf mud (MESS-2), and the other a contaminated harbour mud (PACS-2) (NRCC, 2002).   The two Antarctic sediments were collected as part of a regional hierarchical survey (Stark et al., 2003).   One Antarctic sample was from an area of known metal pollution in Brown Bay (BB), which is adjacent to the 'Old' Casey Station waste disposal site (Snape et al., 2001; Stark et al., 2003).   The second Antarctic sample was from a non-impacted control site from O'Brien Bay (OBB), 3 km south of Casey Station and the disposal site (Fig. 1).   The Antarctic samples, OBB and BB, have similar matrices, proportions of mud (less than 63 microns; 19% and 22% respectively) and total organic carbon contents (1.9% and 2.3% respectively). Both MESS and PACS are sieved, homogenised and dried CRMs that have been ground to ~50 microns (NRCC, 2002).   In contrast, OBB and BB were only sieved to less than 2 mm, thereby removing only the very largest particles (less than or equal to 3%).   The Antarctic samples were collected using acid-washed PVC coring tubes.   The samples were kept frozen at -20 degrees C until wet-sieved with a small amount of clean filtered (0.45 microns cellulose nitrate) O'Brien Bay seawater through 2 mm nylon mesh held in a plastic sieve unit.   The sediments were then oven-dried to constant weight at 103 degrees C (Loring and Rantala 1992), and stored in Nalgene HDPE bottles until analysis.</Quality>

Recommendations

The CMR team recommends that a future focus group explore the possibility of enhancing the element to include controlled vocabulary and structured sub-elements. This would align the Quality element more with ISO19157 (Geographic information – Data quality).   We would also potentially be incorporating recommendations emerging from the BEDI/CDI metadata quality efforts.   It is also recommended that the ISO 19115-1 translation be changed into a descriptive report just as in the example within the mdq:DQ_DomainConsistency element.

 

 

 

1.9.12   Use Constraints

Element Specification

UseConstraints

 

Description

The UseConstraints element is designed to protect privacy and/or intellectual property by allowing the author to specify how the item (collection, granule, service, visualization, etc.) may or may not be used after access is granted. This includes any special restrictions, legal prerequisites, terms and conditions, and/or limitations on using the item. Providers may request acknowledgement of the item from users and claim no responsibility for quality and completeness. Note:   UseConstraints describes how the item may be used once access has been granted; and is distinct from AccessConstraints, which refers to any constraints in accessing the item.

1.9.13   Access Constraints              

Element Specification

AccessConstraints/Description     (1)
AccessConstraints/Value     (0..1)

 

 

 

Description

The Description sub-element allows the author to provide information concerning accessing constraints. This includes any special restrictions, legal prerequisites, limitations and/or warnings on obtaining the data. Examples of values include: Public, In-house, Limited, and None. The Value sub-element is used for special access control list (ACL) rules ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_control_list ) - for example, to hide metadata when it isn't ready for public consumption.

 

Profile Utilization

Collection, Granule, Service, Document

 

Cardinality

0..1

 

Analysis

Providers use the AccessConstraint/Value element to specify various restriction levels with ACLs. For example: A provider might specify a service Level ACL that hides all items (collections for this example) with a value element set to '15.0'. There is no controlled mapping for what the values represent.   ECHO has the exact same feature and there are many ACLs built in off of these types of rules.

1.9.14   Metadata Association

Element Specification

MetadataAssociation/EntryId     (1)
MetadataAssociation /Type     (0..1)
MetadataAssociation /Description     (0..1)

 

Description

This element is used to identify other metadata resources including but not limited to services, collections, visualizations, parameters, granules, documents, etc. that are associated with or dependent on the data described by the metadata. This element is also used to identify a parent metadata record if it exists.   This usage should be reserved for instances where a group of metadata records are subsets that can be better represented by one parent metadata record, which describes the entire set. In some instances, a child may point to more than one parent.

 

Profile Utilization

Collection, Granule, Service, Visualization, Variable, Document

 

Cardinality

0..*

 

Analysis

This element represents dependent relationships in the UMM.   Since data within the profiles can reference each other, it would be convenient to search for items based on associated items.  

 

In SERF, the metadata associations are not directly mappable.   To determine the meta associations, the Related_URL/Content_Type must be read for a string equaling "GET RELATED DATA SET METADATA (DIF)" or "GET RELATED SERVICE METADATA (SERF)", and the URL obtained from the Related_URL/URL element.   The element can then be accessed for information.

Recommendations

The MetadataAssociation should include a controlled Type attribute used to indicate the basis (justification) for relating one resource to another.   A unique identifier and authority should be added to formalize these associations.   In a future release we will add and merge the granule parent association mappings.   An association type code list needs to be created to use for the ISO 19115-1 translation.
