Tools to Support Metadata Metatag Builder
Tools to Support Metadata Document Property Update A suite of Boeing-developed software programs that enable a person or application to manage (create, update, and delete) and retrieve (read) the document properties and document meta-data embedded within a variety structured document formats DPU Features Centralized/Localized Property Catalog Rules-based metadata/property update Proxy (stub) file support for unsupported document formats Supports the use of xml templates to promote reuse.
General Issues Only about 5% of web pages contain metadata Time/effort required to add metadata Lack of skill in applying metadata Promotion of Content Culture Happening slowly Need to feel the pain before being willing to invest in processes and tools. Need to see visible ROI on investment
Technology issues Integration of standards-based metadata support into authoring and editing tools Integration of vocabularies with tagging tools Simple drop-down lists to complex thesauri Tools and processes for managing multiple metadata element sets and vocabularies.
