ready Directory Interchange Format

Abbreviation: DIF


General Information
Directory Interchange Format (DIF) is a descriptive and standardized format for exchanging information about geospatial data sets. It includes elements focusing on instruments that capture data, temporal and spatial characteristics of the data, and projects with which the dataset is associated. It allows users understand the contents of a data set and contains those fields which are necessary for users to decide whether a particular data set would be useful for their needs.
