Abstract: The NERC DataGrid (NDG) project has been investigating vocabularies describing measurements or model outputs for use in its ‘discovery’ and ‘use’ metadata schema. It has been recognised that the two types of metadata have significantly different requirements of this type of vocabulary and therefore that more than one vocabulary is required. Automated construction of metadata records from data holdings requires that mappings exist between data labelling and the vocabularies used. At the current time whilst the problems relating to parameter interoperability through the usage of standardised vocabularies are recognised, they have not been completely solved. Work has begun to explore the potential of schemas developed for the semantic web (OWL and SKOS) for providing the necessary solutions.
