A profile describes the extension of a schema through the definition of rules applied to data model elements. A profile is defined by consistency conditions and tag definitions which are applied to schema elements. A profile supports customized schema extension for domain-specific use. A data model can have multiple profiles, which can be combined and used together to achieve the desired result.
Profiles can also be created directly in hale connect using the built-in profile modelling tools. Before you can create a profile, you will need to create the schema that your profile is based on. Follow the steps described here to create a schema by uploading a schema file, by providing a web address or by using a schema preset. There are presets for all INSPIRE models as well as for the ISO 19115/19139 metadata schema on haleconnect.
