The GIS Working Group held a successful workshop at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest.  The focus of the workshop was documenting GIS/remote sensing data and converting the documentation into EML (Ecological Metadata Language).  11 people attended on-site, and there were 5 sites represented through video conferencing.  The outcome of the workshop will be a document that outlines the different paths to convert GIS metadata to EML (depending on the software versions that are used), and recommendations for changes in the conversion program.  The group also worked on the next phase of the LTERMapS project.
