Metadata Training for Earth Science and Cyberinfrastructure Communities

Award Number 08HQAG0015, Category 1: Metadata Trainer and Outreach Assistance

This project leveraged the expertise of the Joint Center for Intelligent Spatial Computing (CISC) and software provided by Intergraph to conduct metadata training for the Federation of Earth Science Information Partnership (ESIP) and the newly established Cyberinfrastructure Specialty Group (CISG) within the American Association of Geographers (AAG).  The project’s outcomes include:

  1. ESIP, AAG CISG, and other organizations and individuals received training within the communities of Earth Science and Cyberinfrastructure are competent in creating compliant metadata,
  2. metadata files and services built in Air Quality and water cluster in ESIP,
  3. a Catalogue Service for Web (CSW) that can be discovered and harvested through GOS, Z39.50 Clearinghouse server, and the FGDC Browse-enabled Web Directory, and
  4. relationships created with ESIP, CISG, and other organizations to sustain metadata activities beyond the performance period.
