About

Open metadata markup language (odML) is a format for storing metadata in an organised human- and machine-readable way. It does not constrain the metadata content, while providing a common schema (with implementations in XML, JSON, YAML) to integrate metadata from various sources. In addition, odML facilitates and encourages standardization by providing terminologies for metadata.

Usage scenario

Use odML if you would like:

  • An open, XML-based format to collect, store, and share metadata that is both machine- and human-readable

  • A format for neurophysiological data with defined terminologies 

  • Flexible format. The basic idea of the odML approach is to combine a rather general data model with domain specific terminologies. Independence of format and content offers a maximum of flexibility. The terminologies introduce the basis for standardization that, however, can be ignored or extended when necessary
