Event May 23, 2007 FGDC Steering Committee Meeting (American Institute of Architects Boardroom, 1735 New York Ave, NW, Washington, DC , from May 23, 2007 02:00 PM to May 23, 2007 04:00 PM)
This 1 ½ day metadata workshop provides an introduction to the metadata standard with hands-on practice producing documentation for your own data or for a sample data set using the FGDC Standard and the Biological Data Profile. The focus of the workshop is an understanding of the metadata standard, but other topics will include the metadata clearinghouse, metadata development tools and strategies for metadata production. During the workshop, participants will have a chance to practice creating metadata records and ask individual questions of the presenters. The workshop will alternate between lectures and hands-on exercises.
Metadata authors and consumers are faced with understanding the costs, benefits, and practical problems in upgrading their metadata records for ISO-conformance. The goal of the workshop is to help information managers and metadata authors gain a complete conceptual understanding of the challenges and benefits of profile compliance. A further goal of the workshop is that attendees will return to their work environments with a strategy outlining how to identify and analyze specific compliance issues in existing metadata archives and production processes, and to modify tools and procedures to achieve the desired level of completeness and compliance.
The event is designed to enable U.S. geomatics/geospatial companies to gain product visibility in Canada’s growing geomatics and geospatial industry. This event will allow for the forging and strengthening of commercial opportunities between Canadian and U.S. firms. U.S. companies will have the opportunity to meet with potential distributors, strategic alliance partners and end users from the public and private sectors.
