NOAA data providers are required, per the NOAA Data Documentation Procedural Directive, to document their datasets, models, observations and other earth science resources with ISO 19115:2005 and ISO 19115-2:2009 standards and represent them as ISO 19139 compliant XML. However, there are many different ways to implement the standards and very little content is required to create a valid metadata record. Therefore, in addition to ISO compliance, this Completeness Rubric provides an extra level of assessment to help metadata authors provide more thorough information about their data. For more information about the Completeness Rubric, and how it works, users can refer to the Completeness Rubric Information wiki page.

The content within these Categories are the result of many conversations within the NOAA Metadata Working Group, which regularly updates and documents its decisions within the ISO Explorer on NOAA?s Environmental Data Management Wiki. The NOAA Metadata Working Group documents all of our most recent and up-to-date recommended practices discussed by this community in this wiki and all within NOAA are welcome to contribute use cases and examples.

This report is produced using this XSL. You may process your metadata in your own local environment or use the Enterprise Metadata Management Architecture (EMMA) Record Services GUI.

Please register any bugs, typos, or suggestions with this Rubric Feedback Form.
