ebXML : Transforming ISO19139 metadata to ebRIM
author: Heikki Doeleman
This page describes GeoNetwork's implementation of the transformation of ISO19139 metadata to ebRIM data. This is specified in OGC 07-038, section F.
The specification in OGC 07-038 section F about how to register ISO metadata in a ebRIM registry is rather obscure. I will attempt to describe the process on this page. The implementation in GeoNetwork is in the form of an XSLT transformation. The input for this transformation is an ISO 19139 metadata document; the output is a list of ebRIM RegistryObjects, of various types. The RegistryObjects created by this transformation need unique IDs, which are generated in Java; thus the result of the transformation needs a post-processing step in Java, where placeholders for IDs are replaced by newly generated IDs.
A list of uncertainties about the interpretation of this specification is here.
