Metadata in GIS & Remote Sensing

What is Metadata?

Metadata is basically textual data that describes data. It often includes elements such as data creation date, history of the data, data type, and common usages of the data.

Digital Geographic data is an attempt to model and describe the real world for use in computer analysis and graphic display of information.

Implementing Metadata

  • Provides data providers with appropriate information to characterize their geographic data properly.
  • Facilitates data discovery, retrieval and re-use. Users will be better able to locate, access, evaluate, purchase, and utilize geographic data.
  • Facilitates the organization and management of metadata for geographic data.
  • Enables users to apply geographic data in the most efficient way by knowing its basic characteristics.
  • Enables users to determine whether geographic data will be of use to them.
