W3C on MetaData

W3C on Metadata

This is a group that is a few years old, yet what they've produced is right up my alley, and indeed is related to many of the technologies and methods that interest in my studies on Ontology.

Some of the more interesting work is with RDF (largely supplanted by OWL), and also some links to the Dublin Core Metadata Initiative

One of the interesting areas that I worked in while working at the NASA Atmospheric Sciences data archive a few years ago was HDF. HDF stands for the Heirarchical Data Format. It allowed for the very interesting view of data at increasing levels of magnification. Part of how it worked, at least for us, was through copious metadata that solved a numver of different purposes. Here is a good presentation on HDF and it's method for modeling data.
