Abstract
On October 19 and 20, 2006, the Marine Metadata Interoperability (MMI) Initiative held a “Sensor Metadata Interoperability” (SMI) workshop in Portland, Maine. The workshop’s goal was to establish consensus on a content standard, or some other interoperable approach, for representing oceanographic sensor metadata. To this point, oceanographers have used many metadata content standards and specifications to describe sensors, with little interoperability or coordination between those specifications. The workshop included two tracks. The first, Evaluating Sensor Metadata Content Standards, sought to evaluate five specifications in real-world sensor metadata situations. The second, Sensor Metadata Training, provided participants with broad technical training on sensor metadata practices and options. The workshop explicitly generated many detailed recommendations and action items, and initiated definition of still more items in the final report. Participants emphasized the critical need for computable, use-oriented standards, in addition to the (currently dominant) discovery-oriented standards.
