Interface DataQuality


@UML(identifier="DQ_DataQuality", specification=ISO_19157) public interface DataQuality
Quality information for the data specified by a data quality scope.
Since:
2.0
  • Method Details

    • getScope

      The specific data to which the data quality information applies. The scope specifies the extent, spatial and/or temporal, and/or common characteristic(s) that identify the data on which data quality is to be evaluated. Examples:
      • a data set series;
      • a data set;
      • a subset of data defined by one or more of the following characteristics:
        • types of items (sets of feature types);
        • specific items (sets of feature instances);
        • geographic extent;
        • temporal extent.
      Upcoming API change — renaming
      As of ISO 19115:2014, DQ_Scope (from org.opengis.metadata.quality) is replaced by MD_Scope (from org.opengis.metadata.maintenance). This change may be applied in GeoAPI 4.0.
      Returns:
      the specific data to which the data quality information applies.
    • getReports

      Quality information for the data specified by the scope. The quality of a data set can be measured using a variety of methods; a single data quality measure might be insufficient for fully evaluating the quality of the data specified by the scope. Therefore multiple data quality measures may be reported. The data quality report should then include one instance of Element for each measure applied.
      Returns:
      quality information for the data specified by the scope.
    • getLineage

      Deprecated.
      Removed from ISO 19157:2013.
      Non-quantitative quality information about the lineage of the data specified by the scope.
      Returns:
      non-quantitative quality information about the lineage of the data specified, or null.
    • getStandaloneQualityReport

      @UML(identifier="standaloneQualityReport", obligation=OPTIONAL, specification=ISO_19157) default StandaloneQualityReportInformation getStandaloneQualityReport()
      Reference to an external standalone quality report. Can be used for providing more details than reported as standard metadata.
      Returns:
      reference to an external standalone quality report, or null if none.
