GM03 – a Swiss model for metadata

The metadata model GM03 is a Swiss standard SNV 612050. GM03 is a profile of the international metadata standard ISO 19115. Several upgrades were carried out to meet the various specifications by our Swiss partners.

GM03 consists of the following two models:
- GM03 Core = basic model
- GM03 Comprehensive = advanced model

Important: The GM03 V23 metadata model corresponding to the standard has evolved during the past years.
For a detailed description of the differences, please contact us.
