Basic Metadata Registry Objects
Data Elements 36 A Data Element is a precise way of defining how a piece of data is recorded for a specific set of objects, using reusable metadata components. Data Elements are composed of a Data Element Concept, which describes the meaning of the data, and a Value Domain which describes how the data is recorded.
Data Element Concepts 30 A Data Element Concept defines an idea that could be recorded by data, without specifying how it would be stored or measured. Data Element Concepts are composed of an Object Class, which describes the thing of interest, and a Property that defines which attribute of the thing would be recorded. Data Element Concepts can be referenced by multiple different Data Elements that each specify the Value Domain used to record the data.
Object Classes 4 An Object Class defines a way of identifying or classifying a set of real objects, ideas or events that all share common measurable attributes.
Properties 26 A Property is an attribute common to all members of a set of things defined by an Object Class.
Value Domains 32 A Value Domain describes how to record the measurement of a particular type of data, either using a coded list of values or a description of the possible values. Value Domains can be linked to Data Elements that all share a common way of recording data, and its values can be linked to a Conceptual Domain to provide additional context.
Classifications Management
Data set registration and management
Data Sets 1 A Data Set describes a record of data, including any location or time boundaries for the data, that has been captured and is available for use under a specific licence. A Data Set may be included in a Data Catalog, and can reference multiple Distributions that record different parts or formats of the data that are available to download.
Distributions 3 A Distribution describes the structure and format of a specific downloadable collection of data. Multiple Distributions that capture different parts of data or provide different formats for data may be grouped into a single Data Set.
Performance Indicator Management Objects
Indicators 34 An indicator describes a measure that is regularly reported for tracking performance of a process or policy, and provides relevant and actionable information about system performance. Indicators can reference Data Elements when defining their component parts, such as numerators and denominators, and Indicators may be linked across multiple Indicator Sets to track performance over time.
Indicator Sets 4 An Indicator Set describes a collection of targets and objectives. An Indicator Set collects multiple Indicators with common targets that are reported on together.
Business Glossary Objects
Glossary Items 1 A Glossary Item records a business term that is commonly used within the metadata registry. A collection of Glossary Items is commonly referred to as a business glossary.
