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 and correspond to subdirectories within the data distribution package. The metadata layer provides an FGDC metadata file and may include other documentation files. Attribute information for each data layer is described in this metadata file under the "Entity_and_Attribute_Information" section. Data layer contents:
 >border: A polygon that encompasses the maximum geographic extent of the data observations
 >MapUnitPolys: Polygons that record the distribution of mapped or interpreted geologic units
 >OtherPolys: Polygons that record the location and extent of geologic or geographic features other than the geologic units.

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.
