  5. 5. Relational Data • Relational data is how you let the computer know that fields in different worksheets/ tables are related • Unique Elements allow the computer program you are using to understand how to relate data from multiple tables in your workbook to each other • It allows merging of tables and disparate data sets • So in certain projects you will have a workbook with multiple worksheets • Each worksheet will have an element (like an id number) that will relate (be the same) to another worksheet in that workbook
  6. 6. Relational Data • Here is an example of how unique elements in each table relate to at least one other table Image via Kenneth E. Foote and Donald J. Huebner, The Geographer's Craft Project, Department of Geography, The University of Colorado at Boulder.

Example of a metadata standard: ID3 • "ID3 is a de facto standard for metadata in MP3 files” via wikiepdia • “ID3 tags provide the Title, Artist, Year, Genre and other great information when you're listening to music…. • “An ID3 tag is a data container within an MP3 audio file stored in a prescribed format.
