Controlled Vocabularies (CVs) contain the values that may be used for specific properties in a schema. The table below contains links to CVs that are associated with the Common Information Model (CIM) schema.
CVs are developed using Mind Maps. For applications, they are converted to XML format. The Metafor project maintains a repository of CVs organized by project or community. Each project defines the subset of the baseline CV they wish to use. Projects can also propose additional terms to include in the baseline CV (for other projects to include). In this way, a standard vocabulary that cuts across different Earth system communities can emerge.
Baseline version 1.0
This is the baseline CV; it contains the superset of all terms available to CIM Documents
CMIP5 version 1.0
This CV is specific to CMIP5; it contains the subset of CV v1.0 relevant to CMIP5.
