The USGIN Metadata Wizard is a metadata format agnostic web tool for creating, managing, and exporting new metadata records. This Drupal based service was conceived as a means to lowering the brier to metadata creation for those who are not able or willing to become proficient with metadata standards and informatics. The tool is based on a format agnostic metadata model which then can be exported into multiple metadata standards.
This poster outlines the general goals of the National Geothermal Data System, describes its relationship to the US Geoscience Information Network, and shows some of the ways that the Arizona Geological Survey plans to make it easier for individual state surveys to contribute information to NGDS. It was presented in Sacramento by Ryan Clark at the Digital Mapping Techniques 2010 conference.
The Collection content type acts as an arbitrary logical unit (or container) that groups the Document-like Information Object (DLIO) nodes which hold the actual data resource. At this time, Collections fulfill 3 objectives at once. Perhaps, they need to be separated at a later point.
We just finished putting together a Drupal based Document Repository site (http://repository.usgin.org) as a testbed and as an alternative for other Repository systems such as DSpace. The goal was to fulfilled the following requirements in a ca. 2 week development period (200+ man hours):
Following is how we modified the Views Bonus Pack module for Drupal 6 to generate ISO 19139 XML metadata files for the USGIN Document Repository. This hack can be be used to relatively easily generate other XML metadata (FGDC, CSW records) or most complex XML. Ideally, this hack will evolve into a separate module. If you are interested or have questions, please participate in the Generate ISO 19139 metadata record XML files Views Bonus Pack issue thread.
The goal is to generate minimum ISO 19139 dataset metadata XML files (that conform to the USGIN profile) from the core and CCK fields used in the repository's Collection (ct_collection) and Document-like Information Object (DLIO, ct_dlio) content types.
Following are authoritative FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) XML schema document (XSD) and document type definition (DTD) URLs for FGDC-STD-001-1998. These documents are used to validate a FGDC XML metadata file.
Tomcat kept running out of memory when running it as a service from within Eclipse. Following is a solution:
Double-click on your Tomcat service under the Servers tab, and click on the "Open launch configuration" to open the Tomcat launch configuration window. On the Arguments tab, append the two following lines in the "VM arguments" form window:
It appears that the GeoNetwork WMS harvest selects an incorrect
codeListValue for a service metadata record's srv:DCPList (Distributed
Computing Platform). Currently, it enters HTTP-GET and HTTP-POST.
However, there is a bit of confusion within GeoNetwork and among
standards and profiles. Specifically, one could interpret a conflict
between DCP in a service's GetCapabilities (OGC) and a service's
metadata record (ISO):
In order to create metadata for both static datasets and dynamic, online services and for use with CSW, the OGC created an xml schema that merges the schema for ISO19115 (dataset metadata) and ISO19119 (service metadata) (see secion D.1.5, page 105 in OGC 07-045). The way that was accomplished was by creating a schema located at http://schemas.opengis.net/csw/2.0.2/profiles/apiso/1.0.0/apiso.xsd. The contents of that schema are quite simple -- it looks like this:
