Data Standards

Data standards describe what the data set represents and the attributing scheme for the data. In addition, data standards provide information about how the data relates to other data sets, the geographic relationships (topology), provides information about how the data is published and edited. Data standards represent the road map for data collection and maintenance describing how the data is intended to be captured.

Domains (Valid Values)

Domains identify those values that are permissible in a data attribute that uses codes or standard words to represent the value of that item for an occurrence of data. While domains are described and listed in data standards and metadata, they are somewhat dynamic and can be difficult to keep updated in those documents. Data standards list the valid values in place at the time the data standard was issued but changes to domains are not reflected in those documents. Metadata also lists domains and for those that are small lists, do not change often, and are limited in use to one data set the metadata is kept current. Large domains or those that are used in multiple data sets are difficult to keep current in metadata so those domains are posted here.
