Geospatial metadata According to the Swiss Geoinformation Act [RS 510.62], geospatial metadata are formal descriptions of the characteristics of geodata, such as their origin, content, structure, validity, currency or accuracy, the rights of use attached to them, the possibilities of accessing them or the methods for processing them.
A geospatial metadata differs from a metadata in that it describes a geodata.
