Section 6 describes what it means to be in compliance with the Standard
The degree of compliance with the Standard can be based on the following three criteria:
Naming Conventions - Does the implementation of the Standard use the entity and attribute names listed in the Standard? To facilitate implementation, the Cadastral Subcommittee has developed standard abbreviations that can be used in all databases and applications. The abbreviations are six letters in length and are unique.
Relationships - Does the implementation of the Standard adhere to the relationships defined in the standard? For example, the Standard specifies that Public Land Survey System (PLSS) Sections must be contained with one and only one PLSS Township.
Domain of Values - Does the implementation of the Standard use the values for the attributes as listed in the Standard? There is a domain of values listed for each attribute in the Standard. Each domain also has a free text value. If the implementation needs to add values to the domain of values listed, this should trigger a maintenance request.
The level of compliance is defined by how well implementation
of the data conforms in Naming Conventions, Relationships, and Domain of
Values. These possible combinations and associated levels of compliance
are shown in the table below.
|LEVEL OF COMPLIANCE||NAMING CONVENTIONS||RELATIONSHIPS||DOMAIN OF VALUES|
Transferability and Crosswalks - A data set or application that is transferable has completed a crosswalk to the Standard and has the information available to a requester such that the existing data could be transferred into one of the above shown levels of compliance. The crosswalk would compare the existing information with the Standard and identify where the existing information matches the Standard information. The crosswalk would also indicate the level of compliance that could be achieved.
