Abstract

The term meta origins from the Greek word µ∈τα, meaning after. The word Metaphysics is the title of Aristotle’s book coming after his book on nature called Physics. This has given meta the modern connotation of a nature of a higher order or of a more fundamental kind [1]. Literally, metadata is “data about data‿. It can be any descriptive information about other data sources that is used to aid the organization, identification, representation, localization, interoperability, management, and use of the data [1, 14, 17].
