Reported by: selatham Owned by: ko23
Priority: critical Milestone: ReFactored_Discovery_WebServices
Component: discovery Version:

Needs these as a minimum (if available in source discovery format).

  • citation
  • description
  • summary/abstract
  • title
  • author (i.e. Originating_Center)
  • data centre
  • links (i.e. Related_URL)
  • date (something close to "last updated data of dataset") ...Bryan?
  • spatio-temporal coverage fields (bounding box, start and end date/time)

Change History

Date: ask Sam about this, the date is most necessary for building a citation. I suspect the last updated date would be ok ... but I'm not sure.

In Discovery WS we've decided to order-by temporal coverage date. This is an expediant measure until such time as this other date is decided upon (Discovery needs to work today). But it also seems like a sensible thing to order-by.

To add notes for the release already provided.

I think most things are there IF populated. Please let me know if you think something is missing.

It will only work with valid DIF records, and a surprising number weren't.

Note that "author" also includes /DIF/Data_ Set_Citation/Dataset_Creator, the because "Originating_Center" could reasonably be used as the originating centre of the metadata record and this is tag pretty explicit!

The XQuery does some date validation, but this type checking should be extended.

What's not there is the look up, where possible, of proper term keys, so I've kept to non-NDG namespaces for these to indicate this. However, this can be added IDC. Similarly, DPTs and Activities aren't extracted, but could be, if certain "default" MOLES records are available.

However, I think that this does what's required for the panic phase; please re-open, stating why (field and DIF record details appreciated).

OK, so this should have been #592...

  • Keywords MDIP WS-Discovery2 added

Kev says - mainly done for v0.5. Version '1.0' now available with examples. Much the same as v0.5. Try examples with this code. Upload to svn, then can be integrated into ingest.
