Dataset conformity

Purpose: The metadata shall include information on the degree of conformity with the implementing rules on interoperability of spatial data sets and services.


Test method

This test case only applies to records with a hierarchyLevel value 'dataset' or 'series'.

For every conformity statement, one conformance result indicated by a boolean value must be given.

The test first checks if there is at least one conformance result of type gmd:DQ_ConformanceResult.

Every gmd:DQ_ConformanceResult has an element gmd:pass that must contain a value of type gco:Boolean.


Test type: Automated


According to TG MD 2.8.1 (and recommendation 21), the value of gmd:pass may also be null (with nilReason = “unknown”). This is not yet covered by the test method. The ETS covers this aspect, too.

TG MD Requirement 29 is also relevant, because it states of which type the result of a dataQualityInfo shall be (DQ_DomainConsistency). The ETS covers this aspect, too.

Contextual XPath references

The namespace prefixes used as described in

Abbreviation XPath expression (relative to gmd:MD_Metadata)
hierarchyLevel gmd:hierarchyLevel/gmd:MD_ScopeCode/@codeListValue
Result gmd:dataQualityInfo/*/gmd:report/*/gmd:result
Conformance Result gmd:dataQualityInfo/*/gmd:report/*/gmd:result/gmd:DQ_ConformanceResult
