To manage fisheries global information in a systematic and cost-effective way, a metadata level (a topic tree) has been built within the FIGIS framework for each relevant information domain, providing a standard semantic template for the discovery, query and display of Web page structured content. The Fisheries Metadata Element Set (FiMES) describes this meta level which is based on XML language. FiMES is an exponent of the Dublin Core metadata standards, a set of simple, extensible elements used for resource description. FIGIS also supports the AGMES standards, a FAO-led initiative to extend the Dublin Core framework for purposes of agricultural resource description.
The Dublin Core and AG standards are incorporated within the FIGIS FiMES standard.
