Federal Geographic Data Committee Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata, version 2.

USGIN Metadata Wizard released

The USGIN Metadata Wizard is a metadata-format agnostic metadata creation web-tool that exports its generic, minimum metadata model into various metadata formats and standards such FGDC XML, and ISO 19139 XML files. The goal of the tool is to make new metadata creation as simple as possible while still supporting several metadata standards. Give it a try at http://mw.usgin.org

FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM)

The objectives of the CSDGM are to provide a common set of terminology and definitions for the documentation of digital geospatial data. The standard establishes the names of data elements and compound elements (groups of data elements) to be used for these purposes, the definitions of these compound elements and data elements, and information about the values that are to be provided for the data elements.

The Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM), Vers. 2 (FGDC-STD-001-1998) is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well.


Transformation tools FGDC to ISO available from NOAA

The Metadata Transform Working Group (made of members from the FGDC Metadata Working Group, NOAA’s National Ocean Survey, National Geophysical Data Center, and National Ocean Data Center; the U.S. Geological Survey; and various other organizations) has been collaboratively building transforms for the transition of metadata among standards. As the development of these transforms and libraries for translation of content is a collaborative effort, any questions or comments can be sent to ncddcmetadata at noaa.gov to be passed along to the working group.
