public enum ComplianceLevel
extends Enum<ComplianceLevel>

Compliance level for elements. The international standards defines an extensive set of metadata elements. Typically only a subset of the full number of elements is used. However, it is essential that a basic minimum number of metadata elements be maintained for a dataset.

Enum Constant Detail

CORE

public static final ComplianceLevel CORE
Core metadata elements required to identify a dataset, typically for catalogue purposes. This level specifies metadata elements answering the following questions: "Does a dataset on a specific topic exist (what)?", "For a specific place (where)?", "For a specific date or period (when)?" and "A point of contact to learn more about or order the dataset (who)?". Using the recommended optional elements in addition to the mandatory elements will increase interoperability, allowing users to understand without ambiguity the geographic data and the related metadata provided by either the producer or the distributor.


SPATIAL

public static final ComplianceLevel SPATIAL
Indicates a required element of the spatial profile.


FEATURE

public static final ComplianceLevel FEATURE
Indicates a required element of the feature profile.


DATA_PROVIDER

public static final ComplianceLevel DATA_PROVIDER
Indicates a required element of the data provider profile.


DISPLAY_OBJECT

public static final ComplianceLevel DISPLAY_OBJECT
Indicates a required element of the display object profile.


EDITABLE_DISPLAY_OBJECT

public static final ComplianceLevel EDITABLE_DISPLAY_OBJECT
Indicates a required element of the editable display object profile.


FEATURE_DISPLAY_OBJECT

public static final ComplianceLevel FEATURE_DISPLAY_OBJECT
Indicates a required element of the feature display object profile.

Method Detail

values

public static ComplianceLevel[] values()
Returns an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared. This method may be used to iterate over the constants as follows:
for (ComplianceLevel c : ComplianceLevel.values())
    System.out.println(c);

Returns:
an array containing the constants of this enum type, in the order they are declared

valueOf

public static ComplianceLevel valueOf(String name)
Returns the enum constant of this type with the specified name. The string must match exactly an identifier used to declare an enum constant in this type. (Extraneous whitespace characters are not permitted.)

Parameters:
name - the name of the enum constant to be returned.
Returns:
the enum constant with the specified name
Throws:
IllegalArgumentException - if this enum type has no constant with the specified name
NullPointerException - if the argument is null
