Metadata and the National Pipe database project

As an outcome from the National Pipe database project, five Water Entities have taken on the challenge of applying the metadata standards to their asset databases. The first step in this journey is an independent gap analysis of where the differences are between the organisations current databases and how the alignment with the Metadata volume 1 attributes will be carried out in the first quarter of next year, this will then lead in to an discussion with the parties on what should be the core attributes. Other steps for this project of willing entities is a discussion on how the condition attributes and definitions identified volume 2 are then applied. For more information on these projects or to participate as a willing entity, please contact Noel Roberts.
