What is the North American Profile of the ISO 19115/19139 standard?

The North American Profile of the ISO 19115/19139 (NAP) is a metadata standard that is currently in development. The NAP will eventually replace the Federal Geographic Data Committee’s Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM). However, for the moment the CSDGM remains the current US Federal Metadata standard.
