SeaDataNet Discovery services
TTT Activities undertaken for:
Reviewing and streamlining the logical formats of each of the
Directories
Expanding the number of Common vocabularies, further
population and upgrading of Vocabularies Web services
Defining XML schema’s and formats, using the ISO 19115
metadata standard as basis
Defining and developing maintenance modalities for each of the
Directories
SeaDataNet Discovery services
TTT Activities undertaken for:
Defining and developing new User Interfaces for each of the
Directories
Defining and implementing XML Validation Web services, that will
be used to validate XML output from data centres, before import
into the public Directories
Developing Web services for the Directories
SeaDataNet : Formats review
Review of the format and use of common vocabularies for each of
the Directories to achieve harmonisation and integration, and paving
the path to data access via the CDI

SeaDataNet XML Schema’s
The ISO 19115 content model is the basis for the XML formats
and exchange schema’s (XSD).
Guidance document has been prepared on how to use XML for
SeaDataNet, including how to declare references to Common
Vocabularies, EDMO and EDMERP
For each Directory has been prepared:
Description of the format and XML tags
XML Schema
XML example file
These documents are available at the SeaDataNet extranet
Extended XML Schema’s have been prepared, using Schematron
and OCL to support the checking of mandatory fields, use of codes
from the Common Vocabularies and use of organization codes
from EDMO. These schema’s are used in the XML Validation Web
services
SeaDataNet Maintenance modalities
• Maintenance:
Depending on the Directory, the following maintenance modalities
are provided:
Online maintenance via online Content Management System
(incl master editing options)
XML export from local system
Local XML export can be produced by partners via:
own software
using upgraded version of MIKADO software, that also replaces
the present MS Access tools for EDMED and EDMERP
MIKADO can also be used for bulk production of CDI XML files
from the partner’s database(s)

SeaDataNet : Metadata record identifier
management
The Central Directories and their User Interfaces and online
CMS (if available) will use a central ID system for entries
The local systems, using MIKADO or self written software for
XML delivery, will use their own ID system
But the XML metadata records, to be delivered to the central
Directories, will include the LOCAL_ID together with the EDMO
code of the data centre
Then the Central Directories will store internally the Central_ID
next to the LOCAL_ID + EDMO code
This way data centres can:
Send new entries by giving new LOCAL_ID’s
Send updates for existing entries by using the existing
LOCAL_ID’s
SeaDataNet : Metadata record identifier
management
It is required that the Data centres keep track of their
previously delivered entries by storing the LOCAL_ID’s
Each CDI record must link to a local data set file. Therefore it
is required that the Data centres keep a table, connecting each
CDI_LOCAL_ID to the corresponding Data set OR to a
corresponding database query in case of a database
