Metadata Standards - Update


Just an update on where we are at with the development of Metadata Standards for the three waters network. This note is to provide you with an update on this work, specifically around the ‘finalising’ of the standards.

As you are aware, draft standards were released some time ago to the industry for feedback. This feedback has been compiled and is now in the process of being mapped to the latest version of the draft standards. This work is due for completion by the end of March. For those interested in reviewing these documents further (and/or attending the workshops), they will be made available via a simple and free registration process – you can expect more information on how to access these documents in mid-April.

In order to ‘finalise’ the standards so they are ready for release (and therefore industry adoption), a facilitated series of technical workshops have been planned. The upcoming meeting schedule, including the governance meetings, is as follows:

  • Governance Meeting (in Wellington)
    • 31st March - 10am-noon
    • Invites to be sent to members of the governance group directly by LINZ
  • Technical workshops – 1st round (in Wellington)
    • To register interest in attending these workshops, please email Elissa McIntosh ( EMcIntosh@linz.govt.nz)
    • 1st May - 8am-noon – Water volume 2
    • 2nd May – 8am-noon – Water volume 1
    • 3rd May – 9am-noon – contingency workshops/meetings as needed
  • Technical workshops – 2nd round (in Wellington)
    • To register interest in attending these workshops, please email Elissa McIntosh ( EMcIntosh@linz.govt.nz)
    • 24th May – 8am-noon – Water volume 2
    • 25th May – 8am-noon – Water volume 1
  • Governance Meeting (in Auckland)
    • 8th June – 2pm-4pm
