About the Project

The ISEAL Core Metadata Set (ISEAL Core) is a set of structured terms and vocabularies that can be used as metadata to describe, share, and reuse different digital resources across the ISEAL Community and broader set of stakeholders. The resources described using the ISEAL Core are those that sustainability systems typically collect, curate, manage, use, publish and archive. They may be datasets, published research, certificates, videos, images, maps, or other organizational documentation.

View the user-friendly schema reference here:

Built With

  • Python — used for CSV schema parsing and RDF generation
  • Bootstrap — used for HTML documentation site style and layout
  • Node.js — the Node.js package manager (NPM) installs web dependencies and tooling
  • Hugo — used to generate the HTML documentation site

Consult for technical information about making changes to the schema, documentaion site, etc.
