Sustainable management of the territory and its resources is one of the greatest challenges of our time. At CREAF we supply information which is key for decision-making when planning our surroundings and managing the environment and its natural resources.
Methods and standards in GIS and Remote SensingCREAF implements and tests standards ISO19xxx and integrates them into its general metadata model, giving special attention to aspects not yet considered in the standards such as multi-language support, or items specific to remote sensing or the description of the relational database.
CREAF hosted the implementation of a model to describe metadata for each hierarchical level (layer, group of layers, entity or even attribute). This model considers the possibility of establishing relationships between some of these hierarchical levels, noticeably reducing the duplication of information and increasing consistency of the metadata.
