 Metadata Committee Minimize

 

The ad-hoc Metadata Committee was established by the Statewide Mapping Advisory Committee in August 2012. The purpose of the committee is to recommend ways to expand and improve geospatial metadata in North Carolina that are both efficient for the data producer and beneficial for data users in discovery and application of geospatial data.  The committee is not a permanent standing committee of the SMAC, but rather an ad-hoc committee that will be dissolved when it completes its assigned tasks. See the Metadata Committee Charter for more information.

Creation and maintenance of geospatial metadata continues to be an area of concern at all levels of government. Among geospatial framework and other GICC priority datasets, only a portion are published with valid metadata records.  Despite past metadata training and resources available on the NC OneMap website, a renewed effort is required to capture the potential benefits to data producers and users across the state.

Topics for the committee to address may include (but would not be limited to):

  • Return on investment for metadata creation and maintenance.
  • Incentives for metadata creation and maintenance.
  • Role of metadata as a data development project tracking tool.
  • Role of metadata in geospatial data archival process.
  • Best practices for integrating metadata creation into workflows.
  • Analysis and recommendation regarding a State metadata standard (currently the FGDC content standard; the emerging ISO standard is a potential alternative and there may be other options).
  • Metadata tool assessment and recommendation.
