Although ChAMP is a platform of metadata that is not tied to any one format for implementation, in terms of translating to potential users ChAMPs useablility, it is necessary to create some example applications. In thinking about these applications it became obvious that an additional resource the project should provide was a schema for XML based implementations of the platform (schema equivalents for other formats are in development).

The schema can be downloaded here.  Below are graphical representations of the main categories of metadata were identified as being important to characterize a chemical analysis (sorry for the size of the page).
