Geographic information – Metadata (iso19139:2007) (iso19139)

ISO 19115 defines the schema required for describing geographic information and services by means of metadata. It provides information about the identification, the extent, the quality, the spatial and temporal aspects, the content, the spatial reference, the portrayal, distribution, and other properties of digital geographic data and services.

ISO 19115 is applicable to:

  • the cataloguing of all types of resources, clearinghouse activities, and the full description

of datasets and services;

  • geographic services, geographic datasets, dataset series, and individual geographic features

and feature properties.

ISO 19115 defines:

  • mandatory and conditional metadata sections, metadata entities, and metadata elements;
  • the minimum set of metadata required to serve most metadata applications (data discovery,

determining data fitness for use, data access, data transfer, and use of digital data and services);

  • optional metadata elements to allow for a more extensive standard description of resources, if

required;

  • a method for extending metadata to fit specialized needs.

Though ISO 19115 is applicable to digital data and services, its principles can be extended to many other types of resources such as maps, charts, and textual documents as well as non-geographic data. Certain conditional metadata elements might not apply to these other forms of data.

<gmd:abstract xmlns:gmd="http://www.isotc211.org/2005/gmd" xmlns:gml="http://www.opengis.net/gml"
              xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
   <gco:CharacterString>The data set combines the Corine based MAES (Mapping and Assessment of
          Ecosystems and their Services) ecosystem classes with the non-spatial EUNIS habitat
          classification (LEVEL 1) for a better biological characterization of ecosystems across
          Europe (EEA-39). As such it represents probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence for each
          MAES ecosystem type.

          The data set aims to combine spatially explicit land cover information with non-spatially
          referenced habitat information to improve our knowledge about ecosystems and their
          distribution across Europe. The work supports the MAES process, Target 2 Action 5 of the
          implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, established to achieve the Aichi
          targets of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD).

          The objective of the ecosystem data set produced by EEA and its Topic Centre ETC/SIA was
          to improve the biological description of land cover based ecosystem types. It represents
          probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence in ecosystem types at European level. Since it is
          not based on spatial explicit mapping the spatial and thematic accuracy is not of same
          quality as delineated maps.

          The MAES ecosystem typology differentiates three levels: whereas the level 2 of the MAES
          proposal follows closely the EUNIS level 1, the third level of the MAES typology
          corresponds to the EUNIS level 2. This level will be the base for the mapping approach.

            <gmd:statement>
               <gco:CharacterString>The data set production implied 2 steps. First re-classification of
              CORINE Land Cover 2006 and bathymetry data using the 7 terrestrial (urban, cropland,
              grassland, woodland and forest, heathland and shrub, sparsely vegetated land,
              wetland), 1 freshwater (river and lakes), and 4 marine (marine inlets and transitional
              waters, coastal, shelf, open ocean) classes of the MAES ecosystem typology (Maes et
              al., 2013). The classes also provide links to major policy lines such as agriculture,
              forestry, territorial cohesion, water and marine related policies. The second step
              comprised refinement of the ecosystem types by attributing EUNIS habitat information
              to each ecosystem type (see http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/habitats.jsp). The refinement
              process used reference data such as potential natural vegetation, elevation, slope,
              aspect, soil, geology, environmental regions and other spatial referenced information
              which allowed attribution of the EUNIS habitat characteristics to the spatial mapping
              units of the MAES ecosystem types. The geometric and thematic accuracy of EUNIS class
              presence was also estimated and mapped. The method is described in the EEA Technical
              Report 06/2015: European Ecosystem Assessment – Concept, Data, and Implementation.
              The basis for the update was CORINE land cover 2006 (CLC 2006). It includes Albania,
              Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic,
              Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo
              (under UNSCR 1244/99), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former
              Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland,
              Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and
              the United Kingdom. For Greece that has not participated in the CLC 2006 activity the
              CLC 2000 data was used instead.

         <gmd:statement>
            <gco:CharacterString>The data set production implied 2 steps. First re-classification of
              CORINE Land Cover 2006 and bathymetry data using the 7 terrestrial (urban, cropland,
              grassland, woodland and forest, heathland and shrub, sparsely vegetated land,
              wetland), 1 freshwater (river and lakes), and 4 marine (marine inlets and transitional
              waters, coastal, shelf, open ocean) classes of the MAES ecosystem typology (Maes et
              al., 2013). The classes also provide links to major policy lines such as agriculture,
              forestry, territorial cohesion, water and marine related policies. The second step
              comprised refinement of the ecosystem types by attributing EUNIS habitat information
              to each ecosystem type (see http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/habitats.jsp). The refinement
              process used reference data such as potential natural vegetation, elevation, slope,
              aspect, soil, geology, environmental regions and other spatial referenced information
              which allowed attribution of the EUNIS habitat characteristics to the spatial mapping
              units of the MAES ecosystem types. The geometric and thematic accuracy of EUNIS class
              presence was also estimated and mapped. The method is described in the EEA Technical
              Report 06/2015: European Ecosystem Assessment – Concept, Data, and Implementation.
              The basis for the update was CORINE land cover 2006 (CLC 2006). It includes Albania,
              Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic,
              Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo
              (under UNSCR 1244/99), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former
              Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland,
              Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and
              the United Kingdom. For Greece that has not participated in the CLC 2006 activity the
              CLC 2000 data was used instead.

          Europe (EEA-39). As such it represents probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence for each
          MAES ecosystem type.

          The data set aims to combine spatially explicit land cover information with non-spatially
          referenced habitat information to improve our knowledge about ecosystems and their
          distribution across Europe. The work supports the MAES process, Target 2 Action 5 of the
          implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, established to achieve the Aichi
          targets of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD).

          The objective of the ecosystem data set produced by EEA and its Topic Centre ETC/SIA was
          to improve the biological description of land cover based ecosystem types. It represents
          probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence in ecosystem types at European level. Since it is
          not based on spatial explicit mapping the spatial and thematic accuracy is not of same
          quality as delineated maps.

          The MAES ecosystem typology differentiates three levels: whereas the level 2 of the MAES
          proposal follows closely the EUNIS level 1, the third level of the MAES typology
          corresponds to the EUNIS level 2. This level will be the base for the mapping approach.

              waters, coastal, shelf, open ocean) classes of the MAES ecosystem typology (Maes et
              al., 2013). The classes also provide links to major policy lines such as agriculture,
              forestry, territorial cohesion, water and marine related policies. The second step
              comprised refinement of the ecosystem types by attributing EUNIS habitat information
              to each ecosystem type (see http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/habitats.jsp). The refinement
              process used reference data such as potential natural vegetation, elevation, slope,

   <gmd:abstract>
      <gco:CharacterString>The data set combines the Corine based MAES (Mapping and Assessment of
          Ecosystems and their Services) ecosystem classes with the non-spatial EUNIS habitat
          classification (LEVEL 1) for a better biological characterization of ecosystems across
          Europe (EEA-39). As such it represents probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence for each
          MAES ecosystem type.

          The data set aims to combine spatially explicit land cover information with non-spatially
          referenced habitat information to improve our knowledge about ecosystems and their
          distribution across Europe. The work supports the MAES process, Target 2 Action 5 of the
          implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, established to achieve the Aichi
          targets of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD).

          The objective of the ecosystem data set produced by EEA and its Topic Centre ETC/SIA was
          to improve the biological description of land cover based ecosystem types. It represents
          probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence in ecosystem types at European level. Since it is
          not based on spatial explicit mapping the spatial and thematic accuracy is not of same
          quality as delineated maps.

          The MAES ecosystem typology differentiates three levels: whereas the level 2 of the MAES
          proposal follows closely the EUNIS level 1, the third level of the MAES typology
          corresponds to the EUNIS level 2. This level will be the base for the mapping approach.

         <gmd:abstract>
            <gco:CharacterString>The data set combines the Corine based MAES (Mapping and Assessment of
          Ecosystems and their Services) ecosystem classes with the non-spatial EUNIS habitat
          classification (LEVEL 1) for a better biological characterization of ecosystems across
          Europe (EEA-39). As such it represents probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence for each
          MAES ecosystem type.

          The data set aims to combine spatially explicit land cover information with non-spatially
          referenced habitat information to improve our knowledge about ecosystems and their
          distribution across Europe. The work supports the MAES process, Target 2 Action 5 of the
          implementation of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020, established to achieve the Aichi
          targets of the Convention of Biological Diversity (CBD).

          The objective of the ecosystem data set produced by EEA and its Topic Centre ETC/SIA was
          to improve the biological description of land cover based ecosystem types. It represents
          probabilities of EUNIS habitat presence in ecosystem types at European level. Since it is
          not based on spatial explicit mapping the spatial and thematic accuracy is not of same
          quality as delineated maps.

          The MAES ecosystem typology differentiates three levels: whereas the level 2 of the MAES
          proposal follows closely the EUNIS level 1, the third level of the MAES typology
          corresponds to the EUNIS level 2. This level will be the base for the mapping approach.

                  <gco:CharacterString>The data set production implied 2 steps. First re-classification of
              CORINE Land Cover 2006 and bathymetry data using the 7 terrestrial (urban, cropland,
              grassland, woodland and forest, heathland and shrub, sparsely vegetated land,
              wetland), 1 freshwater (river and lakes), and 4 marine (marine inlets and transitional
              waters, coastal, shelf, open ocean) classes of the MAES ecosystem typology (Maes et
              al., 2013). The classes also provide links to major policy lines such as agriculture,
              forestry, territorial cohesion, water and marine related policies. The second step
              comprised refinement of the ecosystem types by attributing EUNIS habitat information
              to each ecosystem type (see http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/habitats.jsp). The refinement
              process used reference data such as potential natural vegetation, elevation, slope,
              aspect, soil, geology, environmental regions and other spatial referenced information
              which allowed attribution of the EUNIS habitat characteristics to the spatial mapping
              units of the MAES ecosystem types. The geometric and thematic accuracy of EUNIS class
              presence was also estimated and mapped. The method is described in the EEA Technical
              Report 06/2015: European Ecosystem Assessment – Concept, Data, and Implementation.
              The basis for the update was CORINE land cover 2006 (CLC 2006). It includes Albania,
              Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic,
              Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo
              (under UNSCR 1244/99), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former
              Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland,
              Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and
              the United Kingdom. For Greece that has not participated in the CLC 2006 activity the
              CLC 2000 data was used instead.

   <gco:CharacterString>The data set production implied 2 steps. First re-classification of
              CORINE Land Cover 2006 and bathymetry data using the 7 terrestrial (urban, cropland,
              grassland, woodland and forest, heathland and shrub, sparsely vegetated land,
              wetland), 1 freshwater (river and lakes), and 4 marine (marine inlets and transitional
              waters, coastal, shelf, open ocean) classes of the MAES ecosystem typology (Maes et
              al., 2013). The classes also provide links to major policy lines such as agriculture,
              forestry, territorial cohesion, water and marine related policies. The second step
              comprised refinement of the ecosystem types by attributing EUNIS habitat information
              to each ecosystem type (see http://eunis.eea.europa.eu/habitats.jsp). The refinement
              process used reference data such as potential natural vegetation, elevation, slope,
              aspect, soil, geology, environmental regions and other spatial referenced information
              which allowed attribution of the EUNIS habitat characteristics to the spatial mapping
              units of the MAES ecosystem types. The geometric and thematic accuracy of EUNIS class
              presence was also estimated and mapped. The method is described in the EEA Technical
              Report 06/2015: European Ecosystem Assessment – Concept, Data, and Implementation.
              The basis for the update was CORINE land cover 2006 (CLC 2006). It includes Albania,
              Austria, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic,
              Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Kosovo
              (under UNSCR 1244/99), Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the former
              Yugoslavian Republic of Macedonia, Malta, Montenegro, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland,
              Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and
              the United Kingdom. For Greece that has not participated in the CLC 2006 activity the
              CLC 2000 data was used instead.
