Harvesting of Bureau of Statistics metadata catalogue

The National Contact Point in cooperation with the Bureau of Statistics established data harvesting between two catalogues, NSDI Geoportal and GeoSTATRH portal.

Bureau of Statistics based the metadata catalogue on NSDI Metadata specification v.2.1. and therefore has ensured compatibility between the two catalogues. Bureau of Statistics updated 12 existing data sources with harvesting.

When new data sources enter in the original catalogue, they will also enter in the national metadata catalogue. This activity is an example of good practice, where among other things it demonstrates how metadata is collected and maintained only once and used several times.
