Registries

Purpose

This page will at some point contain a list of developments that may arguably be considered metadata schema, terminology or ontology registries. At present it contains only a couple of rough notes.


Registry-like developments

At minimum, put the name of the planned development/a little descriptive text and if possible a link to further information. Any information such as project reports that might help to describe the capabilities and intended uses of software, or the perceived nature of the problem that the project intends to solve, is particularly useful.

Software

DART Metadata Schema Registry
For the purposes of this project, a metadata schema registry is defined as an online electronic repository of schema or application profiles that describe the structure and/or semantics of scientific data for recording and exchange. These registries can be used by researchers to format scientific data sets to improve interoperability and ensure that data can be easily disseminated to researchers within their discipline.
