The People Not Property data dictionary is a collection of elements, definitions, and attributes about data elements that are being used or captured in People Not Property - Slave Deeds. It describes the meanings and purposes of data elements within the context of the project, and provides guidance on interpretation, accepted meanings and representation. The metadata included in the Data Dictionary can assist in defining the scope and characteristics of data elements, as well the rules for their usage and application. In the interest of interoperability and shareability, it is important that the same elements, attributes, and values are used consistently.
