Documentation Systems: Solutions for Metadata Curation and Creation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We are living in a world with many metadata dialects and many multi-organization/dialect repositories. We’ll be having a conversation about some of the challenges that arise for the organizations contributing metadata and the organizations that create these centralized systems. These and other questions that will be explored with short presentations and open discussion:

  • EMMA has metadata from many NOAA Line Offices and groups within data centers – they do metrics…
  • CMR has metadata from 18 DAAC collections (ECHO) and many GCMD collections (DIF) – the largest collection metadata collection in CMR is NOAA_NCEI – How does NCEI interact with CMR?
  • All feds have experience having their metadata harvested into data.gov (mangled?)
  • The SciOps collection (formerly GCMD) in CMR has over 1500 providers. How does that work?
  • DataOne has many member nodes, sub-communities, and dialects; do community recommendations influence multiple dialects?
  • NCEI Silver Spring has recently become a DataOne Node – how was that experience from a metadata provider point of view?
  • Organizations harvest metadata from many providers – how do they validate? How do they know the metadata is complete for their community and it's recommended concepts?
