In metadata, Annotea is an RDF standard sponsored by the W3C to enhance document-based collaboration via shared document metadata based on tags, bookmarks, and other annotations. In this case document metadata includes: Notes Comments Errors Keywords Explanations Corrections In general, Annotea associates text strings to a web document or selected parts of a web document without actually needing to modify the original document. Users that access any web documents can also load the metadata associated with it from a selected annotation server or groups of servers and see a peer groups comme ...


ANPA-1312 is a 7-bit news agency text markup specification published by the Newspaper Association of America, designed to standardize the content and structure of text news articles. It was last modified in 1989 and is still the most common method of transmitting news to newspapers, web sites and broadcasters from news agencies in North and South America. Although the specification provides for 1200 bit-per-second transmission speeds, modern transmission technology removes any speed limitations. Using fixed metadata fields and a series of control and other special characters, ANPA 1312 was ...

APE tag

MP3 sound files may contain metadata that describes the content. The APE tag is one of the forms of metadata. It follows the sound data at the end of the file, unlike the common ID3V2 tags that precede the sound data. This makes expansion easier. APE field names "keys" are character strings that may or may not follow a standard, unlike the ID3 tag "frames" that are identified by standardized 4 byte codes.

Application discovery and understanding

Application discovery and understanding is the process of automatically analyzing artifacts of a software application and determining metadata structures associated with the application in the form of lists of data elements and business rules. The relationships discovered between this application and a central metadata registry is then stored in the metadata registry itself.

Application profile

In the information sciences, an application profile consists of a set of metadata elements, policies, and guidelines defined for a particular application. The elements may come from one or more element sets, thus allowing a given application to meet its functional requirements by using metadata from several element sets - including locally defined sets. For example, a given application might choose a subset of the Dublin Core that meets its needs, or may include elements from the Dublin Core, another element set, and several locally defined elements, all combined in a single schema. An app ...

Archive bit

The archive bit is a file attribute used by CP/M, Microsoft operating systems, OS/2, and AmigaOS. It is used to indicate whether or not the file has been backed up.

Date (metadata)

In metadata, the term date is a representation term used to specify a calendar date in the Gregorian calendar. Many data representation standards such as XML, XML Schema, Web Ontology Language specify that ISO date format ISO 8601 should be used. Please note that the date should not be confused with the DateAndTime representation term which requires that both the date and the time of delivery.


Identification scheme

In metadata, an identification scheme is used to identify unique records in a set. If the data element is used to identify records in the data set, the data element uses the term representation of the identifier. The identification scheme needs to be contrasted with the classification scheme. The classification scheme used to classify individual records into categories. The number of records in the dataset may be in the same category.


Metadata facility for Java

The Metadata Facility for Java is a specification for Java that defines an API for annotating fields, methods, and classes as having particular attributes that indicate they should be processed in specific ways by development tools, deployment tools, or run-time libraries. The specification was developed under the Java community process and JSR 175, and was released as part of J2SE 5.0 Tiger.
