Industrial heritage resources produced by industrial activities have historical and conservative values and value as cultural properties as they serve as a medium connecting the past, present, and future. In other words, Industrial heritage resources should be used, managed, and preserved simultaneously as important records and evidence for the future. Metadata is well known as a necessary and important factor for the use, management, and preservation of information resources. In particular, in order to describe various industrial heritage resources that have historical, cultural, and conservative values, metadata elements from various perspectives are needed to relate to the story, type etc. of data. Therefore, this study attempted to design metadata elements that can comprehensively describe different types of industrial heritage resources. And we designed metadata that suited for the purpose of using, managing, and preserving industrial heritage resources, through mapping and combination between industrial heritage-related metadata. As a result, metadata was grouped into five types(administrative, descriptive, preservation, technical, use) and prepared into a total of 25 higher & 86 lower elements.
