WIS Metadata KPIs

WIS Metadata Key Performance Indicators

The Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) provide measurable and valuable quality assessment rules that can be applied to metadata records using the WMO Core Metadata Profile (WCMP) 1.3 and ISO 19115:2003/19139:2007 as defined in the Manual on the WMO Information System; Annex VII to the WMO Technical Regulations, Appendix C.  

The KPIs are designed to help metadata providers curate discovery metadata, help Global Information System Centres (GISCs) measure the quality of metadata from NCs and DCPCs, support routine evaluation for continuous improvement plus useability of metadata in the WMO Information System (WIS).  

Each of the 12 KPIs describes what is being measured, a rationale, implementation rules, scoring details, and guidance for improvement.
