WMO Core Metadata Profile version 1.3

 

TEST TYPE: Abstract tests for metadata uniqueness and discovery within WIS DAR Catalogue

TEST GROUP: Geographic data extent specification with bounding box
TEST ID: http://wis.wmo.int/2012/metadata/conf/geographic-bounding-box
TEST PURPOSE: Requirement 8.2.4: Each WIS Discovery Metadata record describing geographic data shall include the description of at least one geographic bounding box defining the spatial extent of the data
TEST METHOD:
(i)

Inspect the instance document under test to assess whether the metadata record is describing geographic data; e.g.

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:hierarchyLevel/gmd:MD_ScopeCode != “nonGeographicDataset”

Inspect the instance document under test to assess whether the geographic extent is specified using a bounding box. Abstract test http://wis.wmo.int/2012/metadata/conf/ISO-TS-19139-2007-rule-based-validation shall ensure that the bounding box is correctly specified. Geographic extent bounding box is specified using the following XPath:

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo/gmd:MD_DataIdentification/
  ↘gmd:extent/gmd:EX_Extent/gmd:geographicExtent/gmd:EX_GeographicBoundingBox
(ii)

Inspect the associated gmd:MD_Keywords element to ensure that at least one instance of a keyword from the WMO_CategoryCode code list is present. A normative version of the WMO_CategoryCode code list is published by WMO at: http://wis.wmo.int/2012/codelists/WMOCodeLists.xml. Instances of keyword are identified by the following XPath:

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo/gmd:MD_DataIdentification/
  ↘gmd:extent/gmd:EX_Extent/gmd:geographicExtent/gmd:EX_GeographicBoundingBox
