This project was designed specifically for regional councils and their local governments, targeting their unique needs and planning responsibilities. During this project, NARC and ESRI planned, promoted and held one workshop at a national conference and a three-part webinar series with an additional follow up webinar session with great success. Over 25 people attended the Metadata for GIS workshop at NARC‟s 44th Annual Conference, including many local elected officials, regional planning organization directors, and local and regional planners. An average of 25 people attended each of the webinars in the three-part GIS Metadata Training Webinar Series, and 10 attending the follow up session. Webinar attendees included transportation planners, GIS coordinators, engineers, and other regional planning organization or related industry staff members. All sessions were wellreceived, particularly by those who rated their previous knowledge of the subject matter least expert.
