We will begin reviewing the metadata associated with datasets and other content published on data.iowa.gov against the revised Metadata Guidelines. You may see some changes made to the metadata of your content as a result. Changes will only be made if the information can easily be derived from your data or existing content. If additional clarification is needed, we'll reach out to the owner of the content. The revised guidelines expand upon how information regarding "granularity and coverage" is documented, highlights the need to assign a license type, and provides expanded guidance regarding highlighting geography and time periods in content titles and descriptions.
