ISWG Taxonomy of Standards

The IEEE Committee on Earth Observations (ICEO) Standards Working Group, or ISWG, has attempted to categorize the types of standards used in earth observations. This taxonomy will serve the Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), among other users.

With ISWG blessings, this draft taxonomy has been made available on the MMI web site. Readers may download the taxonomy, and offer comments according to the included instructions. For more information, see the Related Items below.

This publication continues MMI's work to provide a public forum for important metadata specifications work. MMI encourages all readers to respond with comments to these documents, and the creators of specifications to announce them in community forums like MMI.
