This page describes the target namespaces of the XML Schemas pertaining to the XML documents this project is about.
The target namespace of an XML Schema is the namespace of documents that are described by that schema. Documents described by the schemas used in the CSW-ebRIM Registry Service specification ( OGC 07-110r2 and OGC 07-144r2) are in the WRS namespace; although there is a slight difference is the actual namespace between the schema for the ebRim profile of CSW (targetnamespace: http://www.opengis.net/cat/wrs/1.0) and the schema for the Basic extension package (targetnamespace: http://www.opengis.net/cat/wrs).
The XML Schema for the ebRim profile of CSW is included in OGC 07-110r2 and reprinted on this wiki here.
The XML Schema for the Basic Extension package is reprinted on this wiki here.
Both these schemas use other schemas with different target namespaces, and those other schemas in turn often use yet other schemas with yet other target namespaces. A visualization of which target namespace makes use of which other target namespace is shown below:
