Sharon Shin National Treasures: Data Preservation with Metadata This presentation addresses the loss of knowledge in regards to the data collected and analyzed by the human capital. Metadata is suggested as a solution to aid in data preservation and rescue data and provide means for legacy data discovery and access. Activities of several entities to rescue data or provide a haven for orphaned data will be reported. An executive summary on the USGS Scientific Information Management workshop concludes the presentation. ASPRS 2006- Reno, NV Metadata PowerPoint [6.5MB]

Sharon Shin, Bruce Westcott, Lynda Wayne Making the Transition to International Metadata The Workshop focus is on the implementation of ISO migration. It should outline a step-by-step method for migration and explain how various resources can be used. The United States is in the final stages of implementing a new geospatial metadata standard in compliance with the International Organization for Standards (ISO). The new standard is based heavily on the FGDC’s Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) but incorporates new elements, domains, conditionality and formats. The standard will be implemented as an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard and have a broader constituency than the former CSDGM Federal standard. URISA Metadata PDF [700 KB]

Alan Stevens SDI Evolution in the US: Solid Technology, Policy Changes, Hard Work and Just Plain Luck The definition and components of the US FGDC and the NSDI and how it was implemented and evolved in the. The principal point is, however, that this is only one model. The model for any other country needs to fit the culture, situation, requirements, politics, and personalities of the nation programs and people implementing an SDI program.

The North American Profile
A journey begins

Hand-shake across the border - The North American (Metadata) Profile. 
Did you know the U.S. and Canada have been collaborating on the North American Profile of ISO 19115 Geospatial Information- Metadata?  And did you know that the Profile, once adopted, becomes the Federal Geographic Data Committee’s Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata Version 3?  If not here’s the opportunity to gain insights on this upcoming standard. This presentation shares information about the geospatial resources addressed and descriptive content of the North American Profile.

North American Profile: Partnership Across Borders
The North American Profile of ISO 19115 Geographic Information - Metadata experienced its origins in an agreement between the American National Standards Institute and the Canadian General Standards Board.  The agreement was to develop geographical metadata content, based on the International Standards Organization's ISO 19115, for both countries requirements,   The country profiles are identical in content and each profile would be release on the same date and time.  Collectively the country profiles would be known as the North American Profile, NAP. The partnership for developing the standard doesn’t stop at this point.  The Federal Geographic Data Committee and Lands Information Ontario have signed a letter of intent to jointly develop NAP implementation materials.  The NAP would not, as many standards do, languish on a shelf.  It would have resources or guidance to assist implementation.

Sneak Preview:The New US Geospatial Metadata Standard
The US is in the final stages of adopting a national geospatial metadata standard. While the FGDC geospatial metadata standard was a federal standard recognized by most state and local governments, the forthcoming standard will be an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) implementation of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Geographic Information - Metadata (standard). This new standard, while based heavily on the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) version 2.0, introduces new formats and content that incorporate more robust data structures, e.g. flexibility, while at the same time addressing the need for increased standardization in individual element values, e.g. domains. Get a sneak preview of these new features as well as the draft guidance workbook under development by the FGDC.

National Spatial Data Infrastructure Cooperative Agreements Program - A Resource for Building your Spatial Data Infrastructure The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) sponsors the National Spatial Data Infrastructure Cooperative Agreements Program (NSDI CAP).  This annual program assists the geospatial data community through funding and other resources to build the infrastructure necessary to effectively discover, access, share, manage, and use digital geospatial data.  Specific NSDI CAP areas of emphasis include: documenting, implementing, and providing outreach for FGDC geospatial standards including metadata; expanding geographic information coordination across and between organizational levels; promoting geospatial best practices; advancing geospatial related Web services; and framework development.  This presentation discusses the purpose of the program and accomplishments of recent projects with the results of universities projects highlighted.  Finally, the presentation offers the opportunity to learn how to benefit from program participation. 2010 AAG Annual Meeting, Washington, DC NSDI CAP PowerPoint [1.14 MB]
