Details

The North American Profile of ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information - Metadata, is intended to identify
geospatial metadata that are needed for North American organizations to describe their geospatial data,
including dataset and dataset series, and related Web services. It is based on ISO 19115:2003, Geographic
information - Metadata, and ISO 19106:2004, Geographic information - Profiles. It also includes service
metadata from ISO 19119:2005, Geographic information - Services, and implementation perspectives from
ISO/TS 19139:200,7 Geographic information - Metadata - XML schema implementation. As outlined in ISO
19106:2004, Geographic Information - Profiles, it satisfies conformance Class 1 since it defines a pure subset
of ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information - Metadata, and ISO 19119:2005, Geographic information -
Services. Retained metadata elements have been selected to enhance discovery of geographic information
within North America and to minimize authorized duplications. The extension of code lists is also intended to
support to geographic information discovery. Annex A provides the adjustments made to the ISO 19115:2003,
Geographic information - Metadata, and ISO 19119:2005, Geographic information - Services UML models.
This profile intends to be an inclusive document addressing ISO 19115:2003, Geographic information -
Metadata, and the accepted modifications. It is presented in a manner to support the consistent capture and
use of geospatial metadata. As such, it includes best practices to guide data providers in capturing geospatial
metadata. To that end, it supports interoperability of geospatial information as it provides a common
framework for the description and representation of metadata. In addition, this profile provides a mechanism
to support cultural and linguistic adaptability by enabling representation of free text in multiple languages and
by introducing a metadata register describing metadata in multiple languages (e.g., English and French)
compliant to ISO 19135:2005, Geographic information - Procedures for item registration.

NOTE - Parts of ISO 19110:2005, Geographic information - Methodology, for feature cataloguing and
ISO/FDIS19111rev., Geographic information - Spatial referencing by coordinates, are covered as needed.
