In order to mint an IGSN the ARDC IGSN service requires users to provide a minimum set of metadata describing their sample. The ARDC IGSN service utilises the CSIRO IGSN Schema version 3.0. Users of the IGSN Service Web Interface generally do not need to have an understanding of the schema as the interface guides the metadata entry. However, users of the ANDS IGSN API should take some time to review the schema as they will need to pass valid XML in their mint requests. Documentation on the schema can be found at https://igsn.csiro.au/schemas/3.0/doc/

 

Note: All geometry needs to be specified in the metadata as Well Known Text (WKT). Wikipedia has some good examples https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Well-known_text_representation_of_geometry

The schema supports the following spatial referencing system identifier (SRID) attribute values.
