Supplemental Information

The DGGS metadata standard extends the FGDC standard to include elements that are required to facilitate our internal data management. These elements, referred to as "layers," group and describe files that have intrinsic logical or topological relationships. Attribute information for each layer is included in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. The metadata "layer" provides the metadata, codesets, or other documentation files applicable to all layers. The data layer(s) are titled:
 >MapUnitPolys: Polygons that record the distribution of map units
 >ContactsAndFaults: Lines that record contacts between map units, faults that bound map units, and associated dangling faults

Metadata

Metadata is the data about the data and answers "Who, what, when, where, how and why?" about the dataset. Please see the DGGS Metadata README page for information about our metadata.
