Develop, propose and promulgate conventions/standards for geology and
tectonics as a priority (features & attributes?).
Develop essential metadata standards (geo-referenced data, scale, geodetic
parameters authors, sources dates).
Priority will be defining convention/standards for CGMW map/products/projects.
Working group will restrict its work to international (Not national) maps
from 1.5 M to 25 M.
WG will need to address: data model, data structures, data formats,
dictionaries/term/abbreviations. Presentation/colours are not an issue.
Standards need to be simple.
Standards need system for maintenance & upgrade.
Review and collate relevant standards and conventions which already exist
in other CGMW s/commissions and outside.
WG will not address stratigraphy.
Need to link to WG on terms/classification schemes.
Test the developed standards as a pilot study on an existing CGMW project.
Establish a forum of exchange of information about standards, experience and related best practise on existing projects.
The consultation meeting of DIMAS WG will take place in Paris on February 9 in Paris.
