An interesting announcement about some metadata standards from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) which use Dublin Core. Dale Meyerrose, mentioned in the quote, is associate director of national intelligence and chief information officer at ODNI.
These standards are a part of a broader attempt by Meyerrose and Defense Department Chief Information Officer John Grimes to make information more usable across the intelligence community. Meyerrose, who spoke at a lunch sponsored by the Industry Advisory Council last September, said he has signed memos since June 2007 that focus on creating a data dictionary that deals with security level labeling and one that creates a central repository for intelligence information.

The goal here is sharing of information within the intelligence community.
“My goal is to improve collaboration,” Meyerrose said at the event. “Another aspect is how well we collaborate with others charged with the business of intelligence.” [ODNI issues new metadata standards]
