    1. Geospatial Metadata Overview WV AGP GIS Conference, 9 -12 June 2008 Presented by: Eric Hopkins, GIS Analyst ehopkins@wvu.edu West Virginia GIS Technical Center (WVGISTC) Department of Geology and Geography West Virginia University Morgantown, WV 26506

    2. Geospatial Metadata Overview: Outline Objectives Metadata concepts Why use metadata? The Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) ISO metadata Approaches to creating metadata Templates ArcCatalog forms Text editing Requirement for data submission Tools for editing and parsing metadata for CSDGM compliance Metadata Parser (mp) TKME XML editors Applying knowledge and tools to your data sets Links to online metadata resources

    3. Geospatial Metadata Overview: Outline Objectives Metadata concepts Why use metadata The Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) ISO Metadata Approaches to creating metadata Templates ArcCatalog forms Text editing Requirement for data submission Tools for editing and parsing metadata for CSDGM compliance Metadata Parser (mp) TKME XML editors Applying knowledge and tools to your data sets Links to online metadata resources

    4. Objectives for this workshop Enable attendees to: - read and comprehend formal metadata. - understand the purpose and value of metadata. - discriminate between minimal and quality metadata. - locate and access online resources. - begin exploring methods that work best for you. - build, validate, publish geospatial metadata

    6. Let’s Make Metadata Describe yourself using this format: Title (name) Theme Keywords (work, play, life) Supplemental Information (unique characteristic)

Title (name): Eric Hopkins Theme_keyword: WV GIS Technical Center Theme_keyword:metadata Theme_keyword: hiking Theme_keyword: kayaking Theme_keyword: sailing Theme_keyword: music Theme_keyword: photography Theme_keyword: reading Supplemental_information:Eric Hopkins is a GIS analyst at the WV GIS Technical Center.

    8. What is geospatial metadata? From Metadata in Plain Language, USGS, 2007 http://geology.usgs.gov/tools/metadata//tools/doc/ctc/ WHAT does the data set describe? WHO produced the data set? WHY was the data set created? HOW was the data set created? HOW reliable are the data (caveats)? HOW can I get a copy of the data set? WHO wrote the metadata?

    9. Wow! I coulda’ had Metadata! title supplemental information abstract time period author sources (file) size

    12. Why use metadata? Data developers and distributers use metadata to - avoid duplication of effort. - reduce labor and time costs. - share information, internally and externally. - publicize their work. - protect their investment through personnel changes. - limit their liability.

    13. Why use metadata? Data consumers use metadata to - better understand the data set that they have acquired. - focus on data elements key to their efforts. - discover data inside and outside of their organization. - access geospatial data via web mapping services

    14. The changing paradigm of geospatial data production and distribution Centralized Distributed Local or regional organizations produce and store data that is accessible via services operated under national standards. A data set may be produced, stored and maintained by a single organization.
