  2. The NPS Metadata Tools & Editor • Goals for the Tools & Editor session: • What it is • How it works • How it integrates w/other systems • Features • Future plans • Hands-on work session 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  3. The NPS Metadata Tools & Editor • Custom software tool for National Park Service metadata • ArcCatalog extension • managing geospatial metadata • Stand-alone application • managing non-spatial metadata outside of ArcCatalog • Primary editor for metadata that will be uploaded to the NR & GIS Data Store 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  4. MTE Timeline • First release: Version 1.0 - June 2005 • Update: Version 1.1 - February 2006 • Version 2.0 - Summer 2006 • New platform • Version 2.x - Beginning FY 07 • incremental releases 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  5.

  6. The NPS Metadata Profile • Metadata extension for NPS information • Allows integration of metadata among various NR-GIS metadata tools & systems: ArcCatalog NPS Metadata Tools & Editor NR-GIS Data Store 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  7. MTE Stylesheets • NPS_Basic_Edit.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  8. MTE Stylesheets • NPS_Basic_Edit.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  9. MTE Stylesheets • NPS_Basic_Edit.xsl • NPS_BioProfile_Edit.xsl • NPS_FAQ_Edit.xsl • FGDC_Classic_Edit.xsl • NPS_Profile_Standards_View.xsl • Raw_XML_Edit.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  10. MTE Stylesheets • NPS_Profile_Standards_View.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  11. MTE Stylesheets • NPS_Profile_Standards_View.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  12. MTE Stylesheets • Raw_XML_Edit.xsl 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  13. MTE Integration • Dataset Catalog • XML export creates editable metadata • Data Store • Provides tool to add NPS Profile elements required for the Data Store • Biological Profile Metadata • Import and editing of Bio Profile elements 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  14. MTE Tools: Parse with MP • Windows interface/form • Run Metadata Parser (MP) without leaving the Tools & Editor work session (i.e., no DOS command line) • Easy configuration of input and output options 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  15. MTE Tools: Import ITIS Metadata • ITIS Integrated Taxonomic Information System • Create an export file on ITIS webpage • Save it to your computer • Import it into an existing Biological Profile metadata record 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  16. MTE Tools: Metadata Templates • Metadata Template: • Create a metadata template by “harvesting” from existing metadata • Update with Template: • Update/import metadata elements from any metadata file to one or more files 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  17. MTE Tools: Text Tools • Spellcheck: • check spelling in a metadata file using Microsoft Word's spell checker • Find and Replace: • Searches folders and subfolders for metadata files containing specified text and substitutes with replace text • Search Metadata: • Search folders and subfolders for metadata files containing specific strings 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  18. MTE Tools: Metadata Catalog • Creates a Microsoft Access database • Stores the location, filename and other information about all metadata files in a selected directory • Basic reporting 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  19. Future Plans • Migration to .NET platform • Harvest Section 5 metadata (like Dataset Catalog) • Tighter integration with the NR & GIS Data Store • Identical functionality between the ArcCatalog and stand-alone versions • Expand Metadata Catalog file types • “Contacts Database”functionality 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  20. Possible Future Plans (?) • Integration with NPSpecies • Similar to ITIS harvest • Integration with Research Permit Reporting System (RPRS) • Harvest metadata from research permits • Browse to and edit NR & GIS Data Store records • “live” editing 2006 I&M Data Management Conference

  21. User Board • Metadata And Data Store Advisory Committee (MADSAC): • Identify and prioritize development • Will affect the development timeline • Provide structure for change requests • Peter Budde will elaborate tomorrow 2006 I&M Data Management Conference
