NBII Introduction to Metadata

Metadata records help preserve the usefulness of data over time by detailing methods for data collection and data set creation. These standardized records greatly minimize duplication of effort in the collection of expensive digital data, and foster sharing of digital data resources through Clearinghouses and websites. This 1 ½ day workshop provides an introduction to the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata and the NBII Biological Data Profile, as well as metadata development tools, strategies for production, and clearinghouses. The Biological Profile encompasses the entire geospatial metadata standard and includes additional elements to describe taxonomy, methods, and analytical tools (such as models). Demonstrations and hands-on practice producing documentation for a sample data set will be done using Metavist software.
