ready Component Metadata Specification

Abbreviation: CDMI

General Information
CDMI is a standardised format for describing the components of metadata. The format is customisiable and compatible with other metadata formats. It provides a framework to describe and reuse metadata blueprints. Description building blocks (“components”, which include field definitions) can be grouped into a ready-made description format (a “profile”). Both are stored and shared with other users in the Component Registry to promote reuse. Each metadata record is then expressed as an XML file, including a link to the profile on which it is based.
