[OSGeo-Discuss] ISO 19115

In the geospatial standards community (I work for OGC), ISO 19115 is  
sort of a bible. The problem with this, and most ISO documents, is  
that it's too abstract to design software around. You generally need  
to go to another level of specificity to do real coding. For example,  
the OGC catalog work <http://www.opengeospatial.org/standards/cat>  
conforms to ISO 19115 and gets much closer to something implementable.
