IODE Steering Group for MEDI, Third Session, Drexel University, Philadelphia, USA, 11-13 September 2006

Author(s) Gregory Reed, Australian Ocean Data Centre Joint Facility (AODCJF), Australia
Summary The Marine Environmental Data Information Referral Catalogue (MEDI) is a directory system for datasets, data catalogues and data inventories developed by IODE. The IODE Steering Group for MEDI was established to support the MEDI system. During its Third Session the Steering Group discussed the implementation of a marine community profile of the ISO 19115 metadata standard. The marine community profile developed by the Australian Ocean Data Centre Joint Facility will be disseminated for comment through a new IODE metadata discussion list. The Steering Group will review comments received and recommend a marine profile for MEDI. The Steering Group agreed that governance of vocabularies used by MEDI should be responsibility of the MarineXML group. The Steering Group also discussed cooperation with the JCOMM Water Temperature Metadata (META-T) Pilot Project and agreed that SG-MEDI can assist the META-T Pilot Project by providing discovery metadata tools and format and also with the technical governance of controlled vocabularies.
