CSMD (Core Scientific Metadata Model)
A study-data oriented model, primarily in support of the ICAT data managment infrastructure software. The CSMD is designed to support data collected within a large-scale facility’s scientific workflow; however the model is also designed to be generic across scientific disciplines.
Sponsored by the Science and Technologies Facilities Council, the latest full specification available is v 4.0, from 2013.
- Internal MSC ID
A metadata storage service that implements CSMD Version 2.5 to record information about physical science experiments.
A sister project of ICAT, consisting of a suite of CSMD-based software tools designed to support derived data management in the scientific research process.
