What Is Metadata/Meta-Information?

The term metadata, or meta-information, refers to a type of data whose purpose is to provide information concerning other data in order to facilitate their management and understanding. The author, modification date and size of a document are examples of metadata. The Coveo Platform indexes metadata to allow query refinement using facets based on metadata.
