METIS wiki - GSIM v0v1.80
Building on, and similarly to the GSBPM, GSIM can be described as providing a basis for statistical organizations to agree on common terminology and definitions to aid their discussion on developing metadata systems and information management frameworks. More specifically, it is anticipated that GSIM will fulfill GSIM has an essential role as a reference model that can be operationalized on a consistent basis when defining the information required to drive statistical production processes as well as when defining the outputs (eg statistical data) and outcomes (eg process metrics) from those processes.
The latest version of the model is presented here. The documentation is layered to address the needs of different audiences, from general readers who want a broad understanding of GSIM to developers who want to ensure an implementation. GSIM v0.8 is the fourth version of the model. The changes from version 0.4 include the addition of the Specification document which is necessary for implementations based on GSIM and more detailed relationships between GSIM and other standards.
METIS wiki - Old versions of GSIM
Earlier intermediary versions are presented in this webpage. From the background to GSIM, to GSIM v0.1, v0.2 and , v0.3, v0.4 and v0.8. In particular, the documents for GSIM v0.4 and v0.3 are also available in Russian.
METIS wiki - Previous GSIM workshops
In order to accelerate the development of GSIM two Sprint sessions were held in 2012. Sprint 1 took place in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from the 20th February to 2nd March 2012. A proposed broad structure for GSIM and a Common Reference Model were produced. The documents produced on these topics can be found in this page together with the program of the workshop and a daily blog on the progress of the sprint. Sprint 2 took place a few months later in Daejeon, Korea from 16th to 27th April 2012 and a daily blog on the development of the Sprint is available. The main output of the GSIM Sprint 2 was the release of GSIM v0.4.
