Harvesting

What is Harvesting?

NEII Metadata are primarily available through the NEII Catalogue. However harvesting arrangements have also been established with related national catalogues including data.gov.au and Research Data Australia. These catalogues regularly poll the NEII catalogue and harvest metadata data from us. Any data providers supplying NEII with metadata will automatically find their metadata propagated through to data.gov.au and Research Data Australia. A metadata crosswalk has been developed to show the mapping between the NEII Metadata Profile and data.gov.au and Research Data Australia.

NEII Crosswalk

The following table shows how NEII metadata is rendered in data.gov.au and Research Data Australia catalogues.
