This chapter focuses on Israel Metadata Standard 2000. The Israeli Metadata Standard (Format) IMF2000 is aimed to establish the framework and mechanism for transferring information related to spatial data. In addition, the standard was devised as an instrument of spatial data marketing and distribution. Thus, the standard was divided into separate chapters, which accommodate various aspects of the description and quality definition of the spatial data in terms of spatial accuracy, completeness and currentness, and information related to availability of information and its accessibility. The major motivation in the development and the emphasis of the separate structure of individual chapters was to accommodate many optional models and a variety of data without using separate profiles but rather various parts of the common standard.
