Towards a Language for Metadata Schemas for Interoperability

Download PDF Read Online

In order for metadata to be interoperable, its schema must be able to precisely describe its terms, context as well as semantic and syntactic constraints. With this precise information, other applications or machines can analyze, understand and utilize metadata. A metadata schema therefore demands an expressive language. Languages requirements are presented and a language to meet them is proposed.
