A new version of the GEMINI metadata (GEMINI2) standard has been prepared to meet the requirements of the INSPIRE Metadata Implementing Rules and will be available shortly.
UK GEMINI specifies a core set of metadata elements for use in a geospatial discovery metadata service. It is a definitive metadata standard for describing geographic information and it allows immediate creation of metadata content with the assurance of stability.
The first version GEMINI, (v1.0) which is the currently used version of the standard, was published in 2004 and is used in the Gigateway metadata service. GEMINI2 is a revised version and compatible with the requirements of the INSPIRE metadata Implementing Rules (IR), conforming to the international metadata standard for geographic information, ISO 19115. It is intended for use in a future UK geospatial discovery metadata service.
