metadata

Metadata is "data about data." Metadata describe the content, quality, and context of a dataset. Descriptive metadata is the "Backbone" of the Environmental Public Health Tracking Network. Metadata is important to the Tracking Network for two reasons.

  • It allows Network users to locate resources through a variety of means including keywords, geographic boundaries, and date and time.
  • A Network user can determine the content of a resource, why created, how it was created, any limitations, access and use restrictions, data quality, and contact information. It helps a user to decide if a resource found on the Network is appropriate for the proposed use.
