WMO Core Metadata Profile version 1.3

 

TEST TYPE: Description of data for global exchange via WIS
TEST GROUP: Identification of data for global exchange via WIS
TEST ID: http://wis.wmo.int/2012/metadata/conf/identification-of-globally-exchanged-data
TEST PURPOSE: Requirement 9.1.1: A WIS Discovery Metadata record describing data for global exchange via the WIS shall indicate the scope of distribution using the keyword “GlobalExchange” of type “dataCenterdataCentre” from thesaurus WMO_DistributionScopeCode
TEST METHOD:
(i)

Inspect the instance document under test to assess whether the WMO_DistributionScopeCode code list is specified as a keyword thesaurus within an instance of gmd:MD_Keywords using the following XPath:

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo//gmd:descriptiveKeywords/
 
↘gmd:MD_Keywords/gmd:thesaurusName/gmd:CI_Citation/gmd:title// = “WMO_DistributionScopeCode”

A gmx:Anchor element may be used to specify the location of the Code List; e.g.

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo//gmd:descriptiveKeywords/
 

↘gmd:MD_Keywords/gmd:thesaurusName/gmd:CI_Citation/gmd:title/
↘gmx:Anchor/@xlink:href = “http://wis.wmo.int/2012/codelists/WMOCodeLists.xml#WMO_DistributionScopeCode”

(ii)

Inspect the associated gmd:MD_Keywords element to ensure that the keyword type is specified as “dataCentre” from the (amended) MD_KeywordTypeCode code list; e.g.

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo//gmd:descriptiveKeywords/
  ↘gmd:MD_Keywords/gmd:type/gmd:MD_KeywordTypeCode = “dataCentre”
(iii)

Inspect the associated gmd:MD_Keywords element to assess whether the keyword “GlobalExchange” from the WMO_DistributionScopeCode code list is present; e.g.

/gmd:MD_Metadata/gmd:identificationInfo//gmd:descriptiveKeywords/
  ↘gmd:MD_Keywords/gmd:keyword = “GlobalExchange”
