EPA & Partners Metadata Training

Intermediate Training: The intermediate training will provide attendees with a quick overview of the basics learned in the intro course (FGDC CSDGM, compliancy, creating an implementation and using templates) and will then focus on advanced use of the EPA Metadata Editor, sharing information via metadata catalogs, and how to contribute to Geospatial One Stop. The advanced use of the EME will include a demonstration of how to modify the database for specific user needs. This demonstration will show the State of North Carolina’s implementation. It will also provide a detailed overview of how EPA set up their geospatial data portal, called the GeoData Gateway (GDG) to serve internal and external sharing needs. It will describe the configuration and the challenges faced in implementing an enterprise catalog as an example of how to implement a Portal Toolkit catalog and will feature a live demonstration of the site and its components. Other catalog implementations will be described and compared against the use of ESRI’s Portal Toolkit software. This training session assumes that attendees have a decent understanding of the FGDC CSDGM and how to create metadata.
