NOAA Coastal Services Center Metadata Training

The NOAA Coastal Services Center will provide metadata training to the current 14 members of the National Geospatial Technology Network (NGTEN). This growing network is comprised of university-based geospatial extension specialists (GES) who typically work within the Cooperative Extension System of their state’s land-grant university. The GES program was initiated by NASA in 2000 with three pilot projects in Arizona, Utah and Mississippi. The pilot projects were designed to explore and assess the roles that faculty geospatial extension specialists could play to help educate a variety of end-users about geographic information systems, remote sensing, global positioning systems, airborne and satellite remote sensing and other geospatial datasets.
