Within the Discovery to Delivery area of the Repositories and Preservation Programme the Intute Repositories Search Project was funded to create a search service for content held within UK repositories and to examine the issues that surround retrieval. The first iteration of this service is basic, and focuses on ePrints (scholarly works) only. A Dublin Core Application Profile for Scholarly Works was funded to provide consistency of search. This work was undertaken by Julie Allinson (UKOLN) and Andy Powell (Eduserv Foundation). Application profiles for images, time based media and Geospatial are also being developed. Further iterations of the Repositories Search service will need to include other media types such as images moving pictures and sound, geo-spatial data etc. This project will scope what is required in the area of Geospatial Data. The project will need to build consensus in this area, to agree (with the community) an optimum solution, and to develop an application profile with the associated guidelines. The project will also need to develop a community acceptance plan for continued take up of the deliverables. Please note that it is recognised that an application profile has already been devised for the geospatial community (AGMAP) however what is required for this piece of work is a Dublin Core 'light' for geospatial data purely for high level data discovery purpose to be used by non-specialists. GI professionals will be strongly encouraged to use the AGMAP profile or the ISO 19115 standards of which AGMAP is a profile. Project start date: 2008-02-01. Project end date: 2008-08-31.
