ISO Geospatial Metadata Editors Registry


As NSDI Stakeholders move forward with the implementation of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) geospatial metadata standards, there is increasing demand for information about applications that can be used to create ISO metadata. The ISO Geospatial Metadata Editor Registry was developed by the FGDC in response to that need.


The review is limited to ISO Metadata Editors that provide specific support to the creation of geospatial metadata in compliance with the ISO 191** series of metadata standards. While XML editors such as  Oxygen and XMLSpy can be used effectively to create ISO metadata, they are not ISO metadata specific and therefore not included.

The information included in the Registry is input directly by the application developers. User Reviews are provided by FGDC Metadata Working Group Members. FGDC and the US Federal Government are not responsible for inaccuracies or misrepresentations. Furthermore, presentation of this information does not constitute nor imply an endorsement of these applications by the FGDC.

How to Contribute Information:
