How do you put your GIS metadata in EML format?

Issue: 
Fall 2009

Jonathan Walsh (BES)

A quick email poll was conducted to see how we turn GIS metadata into EML.

13 responses were received, which represents half the LTER sites.

The results were as follows:

  • Have GIS metadata but not in EML: 4
  • Do not have GIS data: 3
  • Use XML transform: 3
  • Use a script: 1
  • Paste in manually: 1
  • Morpho: 1

The ProjectDB is a means of tracking and cataloging the projects being undertaken by Long Term Ecological Research Network sites.  Information managers may recognize it as similar to previous “db” projects such as SITEDB wherein information is agglomerated and made available as a whole.  This makes it possible to draw comparisons and similarities to the sites as well as gather data from all the sites to represent the network as a whole.

LTER Site GIS Survey Results

Issue: 
Spring 2007

- Barbara Nolen (JRN)

In response to the e-mails that have been circulating regarding the GIS committee, I was interested in looking at the results from the 2003 GIS survey and finding out who is involved in GIS at each site currently. I was able to access the surveys from the13 of 24 LTER sites that responded. But as the survey is already 4 years old I wanted to find out the current responses to the survey. So I summarized the results of the 2003 survey by quickly going through the surveys and simplifying the results.
