ready Resource Metadata for the Virtual Observatory

Abbreviation: IVOA RM


General Information
An essential capability of the Virtual Observatory is a means for describing what data and computational facilities are available where, and once identified, how to use them. The data themselves have associated metadata (e.g., FITS keywords), and similarly we require metadata about data collections and data services so that VO users can easily find information of interest. Furthermore, such metadata are needed in order to manage distributed queries efficiently; if a user is interested in finding x-ray images there is no point in querying the HST archive, for example. The Resource Metadata for the Virtual Observatory standard describes an architecture for resource and service metadata and the relationship of this architecture to emerging Web Services standards. We also define an initial set of metadata concepts.
