Downloading metadata

All users are able to download metadata items from METeOR. Downloading a metadata item provides users more flexibility in terms of saving a copy to their personal computer, editing and printing.

METeOR allows users to download files in Microsoft Word format or as a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. Users can choose the option that best suits their needs. If you do not have Adobe Reader to view PDF files, the latest version is available as a free download from the Adobe website.

Metadata items can be downloaded from the onscreen metadata item view or from a metadata item list such as search results, by selecting the Download metadata item(s) as Word™ or PDF or Advanced options action from the actions list on the right hand of the webpage.

When downloading data elements, data element concepts and value domains, users can choose to download in technical or user-friendly form. When downloading a single data set specification item, users can choose to download the item in long or short form. Users can also choose to download items along with their supporting items and to present data elements using their short or technical name.
