Metadata describes geographic information system (GIS) resources by indicating whether the necessary resources for a project exist, and it is critical for sharing tools, data, and maps. ArcGIS offers a set of tools that allows users to effectively search metadata, view metadata independently of a style sheet or editor, and control when, or whether, the software will update the metadata properties.
Metadata Tips & Tricks will demonstrate how to take advantage of these tools and will also share tips for making daily metadata workflow more efficient. The presenter will discuss updating metadata, browsing the XML style sheet, searching metadata, and working with samples. Overall, attendees will learn how to use techniques in ArcGIS that help with metadata-related tasks in daily work projects.
