Vocabulary metadata

Vocabulary metadata is the data that describes a vocabulary such as title, description, version and publisher, and is important to provide information to the user and to enhance discoverability of the vocabulary through the RVA portal and other search engines. It also assists researchers and other users to determine if a vocabulary will be useful to them. Additional metadata fields can be used to define relationships between a vocabulary and other organisations, vocabularies and services.

The metadata fields required to publish a vocabulary through the NEII Vocabulary Service are detailed in the linked form. Vocabulary providers should complete and return this form to the NEII programme at environment@bom.gov.au with their vocabulary data.

For further information on capturing Vocabulary metadata, refer to the RVA portal.
