With support from the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC), the National Association
of Regional Councils (NARC) and ESRI will be holding a three-part webinar series on
collecting and creating accurate and appropriate metadata, a critical component of any local
or regional geographic information systems (GIS) program.
This FREE training will allow participants to better understand how their effective use of metadata
can allow other users, including regional councils’ member local governments, to search and utilize
their data services effectively. From their own desks, participants will be able join experienced
trainers from ESRI for lectures and interactive exercises, resulting in the creation of functional
metadata that can be published to the Geospatial One-Stop (GOS) or Data.gov.
Through the series of three hands-on webinars, participants will learn to:
• Create metadata;
• Publish metadata to popular, federally supported sites including GOS and Data.gov;
• Utilize Web 2.0 technologies to expose catalogued data;
• Discover geospatial services;
• Use the FGDC service status checker to assess service availability;
• And much more!
This training will be targeted at new and expert GIS users alike, with the opportunity for all to
improve their skills in creating, sharing and using metadata in real world situations. Following
the live webinars, ESRI trainers will be available to provide one-on-one support to participants
with questions, supporting them in integrating their new skills into their everyday work life.
