SDD.xsd schema file overview

(Version: Unified Biosciences Information Framework (UBIF) 1.1 and SDD 1.1)

TDWG working group: Structure of Descriptive Data (SDD)


This document gives an overview of the schema components present in a single schema file, similar to the entry view provided by graphical schema editors. It documents only the root level annotations and components (elements, global attributes, simple and complex types, and groups). The definition of the components listed here is documented separately (hyperlinking could not yet be implemented).

Because the UBIF schema is designed as a type library, complex types represent class definitions and most schema files contain only a single root-level element.

Please see the schema documentation resource directory for schema overviews of other files and detailed component documentation.

Schema file content

The following content is generated automatically from the documentation inside the schema file:

This is the schema file to be referenced in instance documents for validation. It is the top level schema file that integrates the schema components.

This version integrates UBIF and SDD. To add further object types, this file has to be changed.
