An overview
MPEG-7 offers a comprehensive set of audiovisual description tools including metadata elements and their structures and relationships defined by the standard in the form of Descriptors and Description Schemes.

Descriptors typically represent quantitative measures binding a specific feature to a set of values. Description Schemes can be interpreted as models of the real world
