Enum ComplianceLevel

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Comparable<ComplianceLevel>

public enum ComplianceLevel extends Enum<ComplianceLevel>
Compliance level for elements. The international standards defines an extensive set of metadata elements. Typically only a subset of the full number of elements is used. However, it is essential that a basic minimum number of metadata elements be maintained for a dataset.
  • Enum Constant Details

    • CORE

      public static final ComplianceLevel CORE
      Core metadata elements required to identify a dataset, typically for catalogue purposes. This level specifies metadata elements answering the following questions:

      • Does a dataset on a specific topic exist (what)?
      • For a specific place (where)?
      • For a specific date or period (when)?
      • A point of contact to learn more about or order the dataset (who)?

      Using the recommended optional elements in addition to the mandatory elements will increase inter-operability, allowing users to understand without ambiguity the geographic data and the related metadata provided by either the producer or the distributor.

  • Method Details

    • values

      public static ComplianceLevel[] values()
      Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared.
      an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared
    • valueOf

      public static ComplianceLevel valueOf(String name)
      Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)
      name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
      the enum constant with the specified name
      IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
      NullPointerException - if the argument is null
