Workshop Subgroup Reports
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 1183)


This Metadata Workgroup Report first overviews various metadata activities reported on the world wide web. The workgroup participant discussions and contributions are then summarized. A detailed discussion of metadata for scientific simulation and measurement handling has been selected. Different metadata architectures which depend on the relationship between the usage characteristics and goals of data and metadata are then described. Finally key research issues are identified. A specific emphasis of this paper is to present metadata discussion issues from the viewpoint of visualization and its integration with large scale simulation and data handling.
