HMA-S Task 3

HMA-S Task 3 - EO Metadata Profile of Observations & Measurements  - GIM


Summary of the Task 3 activities:

OGC Specification (GIM)

The objective of this task is to evolve OGC10-157r3, the Earth Observation Metadata Profile of Observations and Measurements.OGC 10-157r3 describes a metadata model and associated encoding for describing Earth Observation Products.  It is a successor of OGC06-080r4, the GML 3.1.1 Application Schema for EO Products. OGC10-157r3 was developed within the context of the HMA Follow On project and has now official OGC Standards status.Within the HMA-S project, this specification will be evolved taking into account the following requirements:


  • Improve the description of the quality of the EO products

  • Allow grouping of products

  • Allow inline encoding of cloud masks

  • Allow different EO product metadata in view of the timelines

  • Take into account potential additional EO Metadata elements to align semantically with the INSPIRE Data specifications for orthoimagery.

  • Corrections in model and editorial comments

  • Deprecate elements refering to images in favour of their counterparts refering to products

The list of proposed change requests is documented in HMA-S-TN-001-GIM-V10.
An update of this technical note taking into account the SRR comments is HMA-S-TN-001-GIM-V11.

The latest version of the Technical Data package can be found here: HMA-S-GIM.D3000.1_27112013.zip. It contains the updated specification and associated schemas and examples.

Abstract Test Suite (GIM)

The ATS is included in the OGC10-157 document.

Executable Test Scripts (INTECS)

The ETS consists of the various schemas for the base eop and the derived thematic product types and the eop schematron.

Demonstrator (SPACEBEL)
