Purpose and scope of the JPSearch RA

The JPSearch RA is the competent body designated by ISO to serve as a registration authority for the international standard ISO/IEC 24800-2:2011 (JPSearch Part 2). JPSearch aims at providing interoperability to digital image search and retrieval systems. According to the JPSearch specification, JPSearch compliant systems can manage multiple proprietary or community-specific metadata schemas. The multiplicity of schemas is solved by allowing the publication of machine-readable translations between metadata terms belonging to proprietary metadata schemas and metadata terms in a reference metadata schema provided by JPSearch. In order to rationalize the usage of schemas and translation rules across different JPSearch systems a global authority for schemas and their translation rules has been established where all JPSearch compliant retrieval applications can obtain the information needed.
