Subject [jira] [Created] (SIS-170) Creates a meteorological profile of ISO 19115 metadata
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 01:04:03 GMT
Martin Desruisseaux created SIS-170:
---------------------------------------

             Summary: Creates a meteorological profile of ISO 19115 metadata
                 Key: SIS-170
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SIS-170
             Project: Spatial Information Systems
          Issue Type: Task
          Components: Metadata
            Reporter: Martin Desruisseaux
            Priority: Minor


The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) defines a [WMO profile of ISO 19115 metadata|http://wis.wmo.int/2013/metadata/version_1-3-0/WMO_Core_Metadata_Profile_v1.3_Specification_Part_1_v1.0FINALcorrected.pdf].
The MetOcean working group at OGC (Open Geospatial Consortium) maintains a [GitHub project|https://github.com/OGCMetOceanDWG]
with, among other resources, a test suite for that WMO profile. If there is volunteer for
taking a closer look to this profile, we could take some the following actions:

* If WMO defines new types in addition to ISO 19115 types, then we should create a {{sis-wmo-profile}}
module in the {{profiles}} group. The existing {{sis-french-profile}} module can be used as
an inspiration about how to extend ISO 19115 with custom types.
* If WMO defines the mapping from some format used in the meteorological community to ISO
19115, then we should create a {{sis-theformat}} module in the {{storage}} group. The existing
{{sis-netcdf}} module can be used as an inspiration about how to map metadata from a specific
format to ISO 19115.
* If what WMO defines is not any of the above - for example if WMO defines rules about the
content to put in existing metadata elements - then we should open a discussion on the mailing
list about how (and if) we could support similar features (e.g. a metadata validator which
depends on the profile used).

Note that the [Apache Open Climate Workbench|http://climate.apache.org] project may have more
expertise for such task. An other project which may be related is [OODT|http://oodt.apache.org].
Any work on this SIS task should probably be done in collaboration with those projects.
