MEDIN discovery metadata standard
Discovery metadata is a list of information that accompanies a data set and allows other people to find out what the data set contains, where it was collected and how they can get hold of it. MEDIN have produced a Standard for marine metadata and a set of tools to create metadata records that comply with the MEDIN Metadata Standard. A brief version of the MEDIN metadata standard guidance notes are also available.
The MEDIN Discovery Metadata Standard is a marine profile of the UK government Standard GEMINI2 and also complies with other international conventions such as INSPIRE and ISO19115. Users should be aware that there are some differences between MEDIN and GEMINI2 metadata standards.
