Name of Property A unique name for the property. Property names should not contain blanks or punctuation marks other than periods (".") or hyphens.
Property URI A Uniform Resource Identifier used to identify the property. If the property does not currently have a URI, then the identifier or location of the source of the property (e.g. ISO standard number)
Preferred label(s) A human-readable names for the term, primary for use in display. Preferably the same name used in the guidance instructions. If the property can be displayed in more than one language, different terms should be entered for each language. (Use the form "xx-", in which "xx" is the two-letter or three-letter code for the language, and the term follows the equal sign. Example: en=Title.) If the preferred label is defined in the source definition of the property it will be used if no term is supplied in the Application Profile.
Defined By An identifier of a namespace, pointer to a schema, or bibliographic reference for a document within which the term is defined. The identifier should ideally be a URI, but in the absence of a URI a location or bibliographic identifier can be used.
Refines Broader term. The described term semantically refines the referenced term. A refinement makes the meaning of the element narrower or more specific. It will share the meaning of the unrefined element but with a more restricted scope.
Refined By Narrower term. The described term is semantically refined by the referenced term.
Source Definition The definition of the term. The term retains the definition given to it at its source of origin.
Source Comments Comments on the term from the namespace in which the term orginated.
[Domain] Comments Domain specific comments about the term.
Value type The property will be able to have one or more of the value types listed here. Note that value types in the Application Profile must not conflict with any value types in the source definition of the property.
Value type: uncontrolled An uncontrolled value type will be a string that is not defined either as a set of terms or as a particular structure. Uncontrolled values cannot be used for linking and do not reference any values existing in other properties or other metadata.
Value type: typed string A typed string has an associated encoding scheme that contains rules for how the string is structured, as in structured dates, formats for currency, etc. Include an identifier or description of the encoding scheme.
Value type: controlled list Controlled lists are also referred to as "authority lists" or "pick lists.". When using a controlled list one must include an identifier and/or location for the list if it exists outside of the profile. Alternately, lists can be included in the profile itself.
Value type: other The value of a property can be a complex structure, another property, a link to other metadata, etc. In this case, the value must be identified, preferably with a URI. The value will need to be defined outside of the profile in a way that it can be processed by applications.
Obligation Indicates whether the element is required to always or sometimes be present. In this application profile the obligation can be: mandatory (M), mandatory if applicable (MA), strongly recommended (R) or optional (O). Mandatory ensures that some of the elements are always supported and mandatory if applicable means that this element must be supported if the information is available. An element with a mandatory obligation must have a value. The strongly recommended and the optional elements should be filled with a value if the information is appropriate to the given resource but if not, they may be omitted.
Occurence Indicates any limit to the repeatability of the element.
