Code indicating whether grid data is point or area.
Name of the dimension.
Number of objects, listed by geometric object type, used in the dataset
Name of point and vector spatial objects used to locate zero-, one-, and twodimensional spatial locations in the dataset.
Grid whose cells are regularly spaced in a geographic (i.e., lat / long) or map coordinate system defined in the spatial referencing system (srs) so that any cell in the grid can be geolocated given its grid coordinate and the grid origin, cell spacing, and orientation
Grid with cells irregularly spaced in any given geographic/map projection coordinate system, whose individual cells can be geolocated using geolocation information supplied with the data but cannot be geolocated from the grid properties alone
Types and numbers of raster spatial objects in the dataset
Digital mechanism used to represent spatial information
Degree of complexity of the spatial relationships.
Information about the vector spatial objects in the dataset
This package contains information concerning the mechanisms used to represent spatial information in a dataset. The MD_SpatialRepresentation entity is optional and can be specified as MD_GridSpatialRepresentation and MD_VectorSpatialRepresentation. Each of the specified entities contains mandatory and optional metadata elements. When further description is necessary, MD_GridSpatialRepresentation may be specified as MD_Georectified and/or MD_Georeferenceable. Metadata for Spatial data representation are derived from ISO 19107.
This package is described in ISO19115:2003 in figure A.8 (diagram) and B.2.6 (data dictionary).
