As part of the overall DoD Net-Centric Data Strategy, the DoD Chief Information Officer (CIO) established the DoD Metadata Registry and a related metadata registration process for the collection, storage and dissemination of structural metadata information resources (schemas, data elements, attributes, document type definitions, style-sheets, data structures etc.). This Web-based repository is designed to also act as a Clearinghouse through which industry and government coordination on metadata technology and related metadata issues can be advanced. [2]
