Identification information contains information to uniquely identify the data. Identification information includes information about the citation for the resource, an abstract, the purpose, credit, the status and points of contact. The MD_Identification entity is mandatory. It contains mandatory, conditional, and optional elements. The MD_Identification entity may be specified (subclassed) as MD_DataIdentification when used to identify data and as MD_ServiceIdentification when used to identify a service. MD_ServiceIdentification provides a high level description of a service, for further information see ISO 19119. MD_Identification is an aggregate of the following entities:
The characterSet element of MD_DateIdentification is conditional; it is documented if ISO/IEC 10646-1 is not used.
This package is described in ISO19115:2003 in figure A.2 (diagram) and B.2.2 (data dictionary).
