A Semantic Metadata Catalog Service for Grid [chapter]

Kewei Wei, Ming Zhang, Yaping Zhu
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Metadata is the information that describes the most important feature of an object. In recent years, metadata plays a more and more important role in data intensive applications.  ...  In this paper, we propose a semantic metadata catalog service, Semantic MCS. Semantic MCS has a well-organized data management model and supports the query mechanism using Ontology inference.  ...  MCAT is designed as a central catalog for the metadata of data files. It supports logical name space that is independent from the physical name space.  ...
