Under Heavy Construction

This section will allow you to create FGDC-compliant metadata online and submit it to our clearinghouse. We are working on installing FGDC's web-based metadata entry and service package. The system provides an introduction to FGDC metadata creation (i.e., absolute minimum compliance). Four options will be available:
  • Register and create a metadata entry profile
  • Update an existing metadata entry profile
  • Submit a new metadata record
  • Update an existing metadata record
In the coming months we will be working with the Northwest Alliance for Computational Science & Engineering (NACSE) on a new, user-configurable metadata entry tool that may supercede the FGDC system, and provide more adequate long-term documentation of spatial data sets.

Thanks for your patience and please come back and visit soon!
