Hit the Ground Running with Metadata Training and Support for West Virginia

Award Number G10AC00202, Category 1: Metadata Trainer and Outreach Assistance

The Nick J. Rahall, II Appalachian Transportation Institute (RTI) staff at Marshall University developed a 2-day training workshop focused on GIS metadata in collaboration with the GIS community. Throughout the grant year, 2 workshops were held November 9-10 and December 7-8 at the Marshall University Graduate College campus and 1 workshop was held January 19-20 at the West Virginia GIS Technical Center. The announcement of the workshop schedule was emailed to the members of the West Virginia Association of Geospatial Professionals. The workshop was open to anyone who uses GIS and would like to learn about metadata. The central aim of these workshops was to give participants a new appreciation and understanding of the importance of metadata. The overall evaluation of all workshops was very positive. For metadata outreach assistance and continuous commitment, RTI created a Metadata Wiki website dedicated to metadata news and resources. The site will help form a collaborative online metadata community.
