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, this data must be organized and cataloged, which makes accurate, complete, and consistent metadata a requirement 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), has been 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 Common Metadata Repository (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:

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

Metadata Profile Relationships and Related Documentation

Any metadata instance described by a UMM profile may have relationships to other metadata instances. In addition, as shown in Figure 1, each metadata instance may have associations to other metadata instances and may even include a parent metadata instance that can serve as a discovery mechanism for closely related data, services, and products. Furthermore, each metadata instance has a single instance of a "meta-metadata", which has its own profile, the UMM-M. The meta-metadata profile provides information about the metadata to which it is associated. Meta-metadata includes elements such as metadata quality assurance information, associated tags [10] , and metadata revision history. Finally, all UMM profiles and the CMR Lifecycle are documented separately. The CMR Lifecycle governs this model and related documentation and facilitates change.

<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>

Data Date

Element Specification

DataDate/Date   (1)
DataDate/Type   (1)

 

Description

This element is made of two sub-elements. The type describes the what the date represents: a future review, or when the resource was created, updated or deleted.  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. Note: This is not intended to include information about Temporal Extents.

Analysis

The future reviewing, deleting, creating, or updating 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 time conventions as part of the reconciliation process. Any descriptions that go along with the dates can be stored in the description element. 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.

Responsibility

Element Specification

Responsibility/Role (1..*)

Responsibility/Party   (1..*)
 

Description

This element describes an organization or person associated with the data through the party element described separately. The role (distributing, archiving, providing, and/or maintaining the data) is placed in the role sub-element and the values are shown in Figure 3. 

 

In order to support components or xlinks [12] in the future, the role was split from the party sub-elements. This permits the data in the party element to be reused and stored independently. Thus, the UMM can reuse the Responsibililty element within other elements... so the same person or organization can be documented as having different roles throughout the metadata.

Cardinality

Analysis

During the UMM-C review, it was decided that Organization and Personnel elements would be combined into a merged element called Responsible Party.  Later during the UMM-Common review it was decided to separate role with party to allow for components or xlinks and for reusability of the party element.

Description

This element - a sub-element of the Responsibility element which is described above - describes an organization or person associated with the resource. In order to support components or xlinks in the future, the role was split from the party sub-elements. This permits the data in the party element to be  reused and stored independently. This allows UMM to reuse the Responsiblilty element within other elements to document responsibility for a specific reason.  It can reuse the same person or organization with different roles throughout the metadata.

Analysis

During the UMM-C review, it was decided that Organization and Personnel elements would be combined into a merged element called Responsible Party.  Later during the UMM-Common review it was decided to separate role with party to allow for components or xlinks and for reusability of the party element.

 

 

Mapping

The mappings are same as the Responsibility element and are documented there.

 

Examples

The examples are the same as the Responsibility element and are documented there.

Analysis

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

 

ECHO 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.  

•    OnlineResource - links to documentation information for the collection.   

•    AssociatedBrowseImageURLS - contain URLs to browse imagery.

 

GCMD 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.

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

Recommendations

The URLs should incorporate function codes using the ISO 19115-1 code list in the diagram below.
Although it was recommended during UMM-C review to keep URLs and multimedia samples separate, the decision was made to keep them coupled temporarily. Thus, change requests will adhere to the process described in the CMR Life-Cycle. It is recommended that we look to enhance the capabilities of UMM to better serve endpoints, services, and service invocations.

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 ISO 19157 (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.

 

 

Use Constraints

Element Specification

UseContraints

 

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, variable, 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:  Use Constraints describe 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.

Access Constraints

Element Specification

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

 

Description

Through use of a Description element, this 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 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 these types of rules.

Not only can the AccessConstraint element be used to hide data from guest users, it may also be used to permit access exclusively to certain groups of users (these groups can be created and managed within UMM metadata management tool). For example, if groups of people are approved to view metadata that has not been fully released to the public by a NASA DAAC, these individuals can be identified by their Earthdata login ( User Registration System - URS ) account name and granted access using the value element.

Element Specification

MetadataAssociation/EntryId   (0..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, variables, 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

Cardinality

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 metaociations, 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 tranlation.

Recommendations

During the UMM-C review, it was decided that the text inside this element must be deconstructed and the various components placed into the correct elements. If the metadata still retains a block of text in this element upon migration to the CMR, the text will be placed into the PublicationReference/OtherReferenceDetails element.

Recommendations

Science keywords should be reconciled by adopting the currently controlled and vetted GCMD Science Keyword Vocabulary - enabling all keywords within the CMR to be controlled.  It is recommended that this element be part of the UMM and its value be selected from a controlled list of keywords, which are managed by the Keyword Management System (KMS).

EMS should drop its discipline element from product requirements in favor of using these keywords and mapping them to existing discipline elements.

 

CMR should look to create components for common data and permit users to manage them through the MMT.  For more information about components please see https://geo-ide.noaa.gov/wiki/index.php?title=ISO_Components

Analysis

ECHO uses AdditionalAttributes to describe the data represented in each granule within a collection. These values are important search criteria for the granules. Example attributes include values for cloud cover, MODIS Tile grid coordinates, and elevation information. All additional attribute definitions are included in the collection metadata. A collection may also specify a value, to be understood as the value for all granules. Granules reference defined additional attributes and supply a value that is associated to that granule. Granules may not define a new additional attribute that is not defined by the collection.   In DIF 9 and SERF there is no AdditionalAttributes element similar to ECHO.  Recognizing there is no equivalence between Extended Metadata, that does not have a well defined structure, and  additional attributes which does, there still needs to be a way to translate the data from one standard to DIF 9 or SERF.  The proposal is to use ExtendedMetadata to store this kind of information in key value pairs.   DIF 10 has additional attributes and is directly mappable.  If the additional attribute type is known it can be mapped to the correct section of ISO.  Currently additional attributes are mapped to several sections within ISO depending if the attribute is geographical, describes coverage, describes data quality, describes acquisition, or maps to a keyword.

Analysis

This class is found in ECHO, GCMD, and EMS.   It is controlled within GCMD and EMS, but not within ECHO.   ECHO's Platform includes the following attributes:  ShortName, LongName, Type, Characteristics, and Instruments.  GCMD's Platform does not nest the Instrument attributes or include a Characteristics attribute.   Some of the characteristics information is captured in the GCMD ancillary platform metadata document.  The EMS attribute "Mission" is mapped to UMM/Platform/ShortName; EMS "Mission" can also be mapped to UMM/Project/Campaign if applicable. EMS intends to use only one value; and employ mission, platform and project (in this order) based on the availability of the information.

 

The ISO 19115-2 MI_Platform class was extended to EOS_Platform in order to facilitate the addition of ECHO additional attributes and sensors to the platform descriptions.

Recommendations

Platforms should be reconciled so all keywords are controlled within the CMR through the keyword management system. To be consistent UMM Platform structure should be used.

Description

The Instrument element is nested within the Platform element and is used to register the device that measured or recorded the data, including direct human observation.  This is useful to find data from a specific instrument.

Analysis

This element is found in ECHO, GCMD, and EMS.   It is controlled within GCMD but not within ECHO or EMS.  ECHO's Instrument element includes the following sub-elements:  ShortName, LongName, Technique, NumberOfSensors, Characteristics, Sensors, and OperationModes.  GCMD's Source_Name element does not nest the Instrument sub-element or include any of the other elements found in ECHO.  Some of the characteristics information is captured in the GCMD ancillary instrument metadata document.  The extended DIF will rename the Source_Name to platform and nests the instrument element.  Because this is a newly required element in the UMM and not all collections have associated instruments, the keywords "Not Available", "Not Applicable", and "Unknown" will be added to the controlled keyword list for collections that are not associated with an instrument.

 

The ISO 19115-2 MI_Instrument class was extended to EOS_Instrument in order to facilitate the addition of ECHO additional attributes to the instrument descriptions.

Analysis

This element is found in both ECHO and GCMD. In the GCMD DIF 9, the DIF/Sensor_Name element is used to record both Instrument and Sensor information. Unlike in ECHO, there is no delineation between Instrument and Sensor.   The DIF/Sensor_Name element is controlled within GCMD but the Sensor element is not controlled in ECHO.    ECHO's Sensor includes the following sub-elements:  ShortName, LongName, Technique, and Characteristics.  GCMD's DIF 9 Platform/Instrument hierarchy does not nest this information or include any of the other sub-elements found in ECHO; DIF 10 will nest the information and include the other sub-elements.  Some of the characteristics information is captured in the GCMD ancillary instrument metadata document.

 

The ISO 19115-2 MI_AcquisitionInformation class was extended by adding EOS_Sensor in order to describe instruments with multiple sensors.

Recommendations

The Sensor information should be controlled within the CMR through the keyword management system. A reconciliation process should be done to pull out specific sensor information found in GCMD metadata records specific to each Instrument.   The GCMD Instrument Ancillary document provides a list of sensors that could help this effort. ECHO's hierarchical structure for Platform/Instrument/Sensor should be included as part of the UMM.

Description

The project element describes the name of the scientific program, field campaign, or project from which the data were collected. This element may also cover a long term project that continuously creates new data sets — like MEaSUREs from ISCCP and NVAP or CMARES from MISR.

 

Project also includes the Campaign sub-element to support multiple campaigns under the same project.

Cardinality

Analysis

This element is found in both ECHO, where it is not controlled, and within GCMD, where it is controlled. Multiple campaigns can be associated with the same project, which is not represented in either GCMD or ECHO (keyword with no hierarchy in either format).   The EMS element is mapped to UMM/Platform/ShortName; EMS "Mission" can also be mapped to UMM/Project/Campaign if applicable. EMS intends to use only one value and employ mission, platform and project (in this order) based on the availability of the information. Because the Project element is required in the UMM-C, EMS may not have to use platform or any other element; thus, no mapping is required.

Recommendations

ECHO's Temporal element should be adopted by the UMM - as it is a superset of what GCMD supports and can capture single date times, range date/times, and periodic date times, as well as temporal resolution data.


Finally, any dates, times, or temporal ranges specified in the TemporalCoverage element should use the ISO 8601 format. Unknown dates can also be represented in the ISO 8601 format.

 

There are several elements in the ECHO schema (such as /Collection/Temporal/DateType and TimeType) that need cleanup, revision, or deprecation.

Analysis

This element is found in both GCMD and ECHO.   Spatial metadata describes the area of Earth that a collection covers. In DIF 9, the spatial extent is represented as a bounding box using a Cartesian coordinate system. In ECHO, spatial data can be represented in both Cartesian and Geodetic coordinate systems or as orbits. The Cartesian and geodetic (World Geodetic System 84) coordinate systems accept spatial data types of Point, Line, Bounding Rectangle and Polygon. See ECHO's Data Partner User Guide for more details on ECHO's support for spatial data.
