​The Geospatial Metadata standard is applicable to objects that have an explicit geographic extent.  Such objects may be stored in geographic information systems (GIS) or may be documents, datasets, images or other objects, services, or related items that exist in some other environment.

The ISO 19115 North American Profile, currently used internationally for the collection, management and dissemination of geospatial metadata, is the recognized standard.
