Topic - NASA’s Implementation of ISO 19115: the Common Metadata Repository

Abstract: NASA’s Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) generates, archives, and distributes enormous amounts of Earth Science data via its Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs). This data is accessed and employed by a broad user community. It is therefore imperative that reliable, consistent, and high-quality metadata be maintained in order to enable accurate cataloging, discovery, accessibility, and interpretation. To this end, the Common Metadata Repository (CMR) has been established to serve as a clearing house for these metadata. The CMR employs a metadata model that unifies crosswalk translations between various metadata formats including ISO 19115. This presentation will focus on the usage of ISO 19115 within the CMR including format translations, metadata guidance for new implementers, addressing issues encountered during the CMR model development, and future plans.
