Link: UK GovTalk Data Standards Catalogue – part of e-GIF

  • The e-Government Interoperability Framework (e-GIF) mandates the adoption of XML and the development of XML schemas as the cornerstone of the government interoperability and integration strategy.

     

    The Government Data Standards Catalogue sets out the Government Data Standards (GDS) to be used in the schemas and other interchange processes. It also contains the standards agreed to date. These standards are also recommended for data storage at the business level. The Catalogue comprises 2 volumes:

    Volume 1 – sets out the rationale, approach and rules for setting and agreeing the set of Government Data Standards (GDS) to be used in the schemas and other interchange processes. Volume 1 sets out the general principles, i.e. the rationale, approach and rules for setting standards.

    Volume 2 – sets out the Data Types and Data Items standards. The source for this is an XML document which is published as HTML files or as a PDF file on the Govtalk website.
