Metadata Management for Meteorological Data
SMHI has large volumes of meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic
data (MHO data) in the data warehouse. However, data are not completely
and uniformly documented. A major problem is to locate appropriate
information and to interpret the data in a correct way. In this thesis,
a metadata model is proposed for documenting and searching all the
existing data. The project adopts FGDC standard (Federal Geographic Data
Committee) and develops a profile for MHO data. The proposed solution
simplifies data manipulation in the large databases and file systems. It
enables complete documentation within the data warehouse and on the
Internet among the world meteorological communities. In this project, a
search tool is also implemented based on the model.
Keywords: data warehouses, meterological data, hydrological data,oceanographic data, metadata model
