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.
 
2007 Delaware GIS Conference will be May 1 and 2 at the Dover Sheraton. The web site is http://www.degis.org/
This workshop April 26-27, 2007 is an abbreviated format of the traditional 3-day NSDI Train the Metadata Trainer Workshop. Workshop site is the historic LaSalle Hotel in Bryan, Texas. Lead Trainers: Lynda Wayne, FGDC, and Viv Hutchison, USGS-NBII, with Trainers in Training: Jaci Mize and Kathy Martinloch, NOAA-Coastal Data Development Center. Workshop focus supports development of a trainer capacity within the Texas Regional Councils and meeting NBII training requests.
Some of the workshop content will include: · A look at some of the new and upcoming enhancements to the portal · Creating a Community · Customizing the Community to create dynamic and interesting content that attracts attention · Taking advantage of existing websites to feature within the Community · Creating a Map gallery and incorporating ‘Add to Map’ functions · Building and featuring a custom view of multiple map services using the map viewer · Publishing a WMS, WFS, WCS, etc. · Working with the Channel Editor tool
 
 
The workshop will provide course material on the FGDC metadata standard - Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Standard. The workshop will cover information on software tools such as ArcCatalog, NOAA's MerMaid, and other freeware metadata editors and provide information about the existing metadata resource network for the creation, development and dissemination of metadata. This workshop is presented by NOAA-CDDC, hosted by Texas A & M University, and coordinated with the Texas Department of Information Resources.
 
 
 
The FGDC is currently leading the development of a U.S. profile of the (ISO) international metadata standard. Metadata authors and consumers are faced with understanding the practical problems in upgrading their metadata records for ISO-conformance. The goal of this 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 workplace 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.
 
MAPPS members in private geospatial firms and agency officials involved in surveying, mapping and other geospatial areas gather in Washington, D.C. for briefings and to share information on common issues.

Title: Don’t Duck Metadata- The national geospatial metadata program. How does the realization that multiple agencies are working on very similar projects and the concept of coordination and collaboration spark the concept of data sharing? How does one learn if geospatial data exists, where to find it, how to evaluate it? The metadata program journey has had its ups and downs and encountered hazardous curves and rocky roads. Obstructionists and “nay-sayers” were plentiful. How does a small program overcome inertia to covet, protect, and internalize data? This presentation shares the progression of the program from duckling to fledgling stage and focuses on the program’s activities that result in successes in the federal, state, local, academic, and Tribal sectors. • The why of and what is the Executive Order? • “Corporate” metadata support • “Don’t duck Metadata”- the program • Stumbling blocks • Program successes • Performance strategies Sharon Shin provides leadership to metadata enthusiast representing multiple governmental levels, academia, private sector, and non-governmental agencies. Eight years in two federal geospatial programs has provided Sharon with many experiences, challenges, and successes. Sharon’s current role is Metadata Coordinator for the Federal Geographic Data Committee Secretariat. The FGDC is a program which spans across departments of the U.S. Government’s Executive Branch, the military service branches, state, local, academia, Tribal governments, as well as the private sector. Metadata elders told her “train metadata and see the world” and that it has. Spanning the U.S., partnering with federal Canadian agencies, and counseling international organizations; metadata has presented her with a passport of enriching encounters while training geospatial metadata.
