Facilitating a Statewide GIS Metadata Standard through Training, Outreach and Programmatic Metadata Evaluation

Authors:
Timothy Mulrooney

Keywords: GIS Metadata; Metadata; Metadata Profile; North Carolina State and Local Government Profile

Abstract:
Under the supervision of the North Carolina Geographic In-formation Coordinating Council and Statewide Mapping Ad-visory Committee, a committee defined and developed a State and Local Government Metadata profile intended for use in North Carolina. This profile is based on the International Organization for Standardization 191** standards. In addi-tion to dictating best practices and conventions for existing metadata entries such as the Title, Publication Date and Use Constraints, this standard accounts for evolving technologies that did not exist when original metadata standards were first developed. While the rate at which geoinformation is created has exponentially increased, the time dedicated to cataloging and subsequently assessing and evaluating this metadata in-formation remains nearly the same. In addition to educating the North Carolina Geographic Information Systems commu-nity on the use and application of metadata, as well as this new standard, the research team is developing tools so GIS managers can gauge standard compliance more efficiently and proactively than in the past. In this paper, the research team has been using programming methods in which metadata entries from multiple layers in large geospatial databases can be assessed and evaluated. These methods were tested using various quantitative methods, including the Technology Ac-ceptance Model. This can provide insight into the various accuracies (horizontal, vertical, temporal, etc.) of layers which in turn can dictate future efforts. It can also be used to identify inconsistencies in metadata entries with an end goal of understanding misinterpretation and misunderstanding of the profile so it can be improved in future incarnations.
