XSLT and DDI: Using Metadata to drive data capture and processing

Presenter 1
Samuel Spencer
Australian Bureau of Statistics

DDI offers users numerous ways to use and capture data and metadata. With the shift towards a statistical lifecycle approach in DDI 3, we must look at how these two facets can work together to drive capture and processing of events downstream of the lifecycle. In this presentation there we will be a discussion of how the metadata captured in DDI 3 can be used and transformed to assist other processes within the lifecycle. Finally, this will be demonstrated using a DDI Instance of the Internet Access Survey from the Australian Bureau of Statistics showing how an XSLT transform can convert DDI 3.1 metadata in XForms for internet data capture.
