1 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December Metadata in ArcGIS 10 John Bocchino: NJ Department of Environmental Protection Edith Konopka, NJ Office of Information Technology, Office of GIS Challenges Solutions

2 MD at ArcGIS February Outline Part 1: Challenges and Solutions –What Changed –Whats New –Solutions (What To Do) Part 2: An Optional Editor with EPA EME –What is EME? –Features –Usage Basics Part 3: EME: A Closer Look 6 December 20112

3 MD at ArcGIS 10 Part 1: Challenges and Solutions What Changed with ArcGIS 10 New metadata storage New metadata editor Must set metadata style Old FGDC editor is an add-in 27 February December 20113

4 MD at ArcGIS 10 Why Change? ISO is coming, ISO is coming Only virtue of old FGDC CSDGM editor: familiarity Take advantage of –xml tools –More modern programming platform –Allow users to customize –Accommodate multiple standards 6 December 20114

5 MD at ArcGIS 10 Geospatial Metadata Standards FGDC CSDGM = old standard –ESRI profile and additions (extensions) ISO = new standard ISO NAP = North American Profile ISO = revision, currently in-work ISO = Service metadata ISO = Feature catalog aka Attribute Table ISO Inspire = European Union More… profiles, etc ISO = XML Schema for expressing ISO and related in XML 6 December 20115

6 MD at ArcGIS 10 ISO Content: its metadata! 6 December Where –were the data collected? –were the data processed? –are the data located? What –are the data about? –project were they collected under? –are the constraints on their use? –is the quality? –are appropriate uses? –parameters were measured? –format are the data in? When –were the data collected? –were the data processed? –were the data published How –were the data collected? –were the data processed? –do I access the data? –do I order the data? –much do the data cost? –was the quality assessed? Who –collected the data? –processed the data? –wrote the metadata? –to contact for questions? –to contact to order? –owns the data? Why –were the data collected?

7 MD at ArcGIS 10 Talking About Metadata Section = Big logical chunk Element/Attribute = a single structured piece of information, e.g. – Ice Cream Store Point Locations in Westfield, NJ XML = Extensible Markup Language (illus. here) ISO (UML) attribute vs XML attribute – Connect A to B. – 6 December 20117

8 MD at ArcGIS 10 But its a little different FGDC CSDGM vs ISO 6 December Main Sections of FGDC CSDGM Identification Information Data Quality Information Spatial Data Organization Information Spatial Reference Information Entity and Attribute Information Distribution Information Metadata Reference Information Main Sections of ISO Metadata Information Spatial Representation Information Reference System Information Metadata Extension Information Identification Information Content Information Distribution Information Data Quality Information Portrayal Catalogue Information Metadata Constraints Application Schema Information Metadata Maintenance Information Slide content courtesy of Jacqueline Mize, NOAA National Coastal Data Development Center

9 MD at ArcGIS 10 New ArcCatalog Editor and Viewer The Good Better user interface Pick lists and calendars; automatic formatting Editor stores xml in geodatabase in native (non proprietary) xml format Collects info needed for ISO Geoprocessing tools for many metadata functions The Bad and Ugly Lots of bugs thru sp2 Still some bugs at sp3 Hard to produce/reproduce FGDC CSDGM Upgrade scrambles process steps ISO metadata not supported by most US catalogs yet 6 December 20119

10 MD at ArcGIS 10 ArcCatalog 10 viewer 6 December

11 MD at ArcGIS 10 ArcCatalog 10 ArcGIS editor 6 December

12 MD at ArcGIS 10 ArcCatalog 10 ArcGIS editor 6 December

13 MD at ArcGIS 10 Workflow Decisions Keep using old FGDC editor if –Need FGDC metadata for catalogs –Dont want to learn new editor until it really works –Have a collection of FGDC metadata that must be maintained Switch to new ArcGIS editor if –Like the latest and greatest –Are willing to do xml editing of almost ok FGDC metadata –Have NO FGDC metadata to start with (maybe) 6 December

14 MD at ArcGIS 10 Which Service Pack? ArcCatalog 10.0 and sp1: DONT USE THIS ArcCatalog 10.0 sp2: Use if synchronizing data and FGDC metadata is required ArcCatalog 10.0 sp3: Use if switching to new Editor 6 December

15 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the FGDC Editor at ArcGIS 10 Think, then act Practical tips follow 6 December

16 MD at ArcGIS 10 DONT DO THIS Dont use the import button Dont upgrade your existing metadata before thinking about it carefully Dont use the export metadata button 6 December Using the FGDC Editor

17 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December ? Using the FGDC Editor

18 MD at ArcGIS 10 Do this first Install service pack 2, includes FGDC style –WARNING: may also need one or more patches Set metadata style to FGDC Download and install FGDC editor Optional: Download and install NPS synchronizer (sp2 only) 6 December Using the FGDC Editor

19 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the FGDC Editor: Downloads Service pack 2 packs?fa=listPatches&PID=160&FilterPV_1=654&maxVe rsion=1&maxCategory=2&FilterVersion=+gohttp://resources.arcgis.com/content/patches-and-service- packs?fa=listPatches&PID=160&FilterPV_1=654&maxVe rsion=1&maxCategory=2&FilterVersion=+go+ Old FGDC editor 6/25/FGDC-Metadata-Editor-for-ArcGIS-10.aspx Note: destination may depend on OS.

20 MD at ArcGIS 10 After installing service pack, setting style 6 December Using the FGDC Editor

21 MD at ArcGIS 10 Drag button to toolbar 1 2 After downloading FGDC editor, installation 6 December Using the FGDC Editor

22 MD at ArcGIS 10 Viewing FGDC metadata FGDC style – base elements only 6 December

23 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the FGDC Editor 6 December

24 MD at ArcGIS 10 Moving FGDC metadata DONT USE Import, Export buttons DONT USE Import, Export metadata models DO use ArcToolbox Metadata Importer tool for Import AND Export Do use ArcToolbox USGS MP Metadata Translator tool 6 December

25 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December

26 MD at ArcGIS 10 Final comments Instructions for NJGIN contributors https://njgin.state.nj.us/oit/gis/NJ_NJGINExpl orer/docs/Tips_MD_Arc10.pdf See Reference handout (will be posted) Another option for limited editing of FGDC metadata (JB, youre on!) EPA Metadata Editor for ArcGIS 10 https://edg.epa.gov/EME/ 27 February

27 MD at ArcGIS February A Simple 3-Tab editor for creating, editing and validating metadata -ArcGIS 10 Compatible -Standalone 6 December Part 2 : The E PA M etadata E ditor Current EME v 3.1.2

28 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December What is EME? The TurboTax of Metadata Editors

29 MD at ArcGIS 10 EME Why not endorse as an option before? Customized for mainly EPA ( especially early versions ) –EPA/NJDEP Differences (missing fields) –No ability to easily modify fields/dropdowns (no source code) –No detailed Entity & Attribute Section (just overview) –Multiple Entry Problems (online linkages, process steps) –Additional System Requirements (now in ArcGIS 10) –XML header problems –Other bugs –Major software/hardware changes! ArcGIS 10 ISO influence 6 December

30 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December Using the EME Earlier Versions in ArcGIS (9.x) –EME 3.0 must be uninstalled prior to uninstalling ArcGIS 9.X. –EPA has developed a patch to help address this issue (Included in EME v3.1.1 download package) Uninstall EME 3.0 Uninstall ArcGIS 9.x

31 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME EME v Requirements –Microsoft.NET Framework 3.5 –ArcGIS 10 (for ArcGIS extension) –FGDC Style Patch (for ArcGIS extension) *sp2 (allows viewing of FGDC metadata) *Microsoft Access: Enter Defaults into select databases –One user with Access can share master database (mdb) in a multi- user environment

32 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December EME Join NJDEP Notification List if not released by Dec. 6th Version available now Whats Planned for Next Update (3.2 Jan 2012) –Include additional fields Source citation information Spatial data organization Standard order process Will match NJDEP Metadata Profile

33 MD at ArcGIS 10 EME Key Features Custom Synchronization Keyboard shortcuts for Copy,Cut and Paste Metadata Export & Import tools from the EME Toolbar, Provides direct access to EME Help from the EME Toolbar Provides EME source code from EME website. Spellcheck Find and replace Validate from within the tool Microsoft Access database to supply default information within the user interface! 6 December

34 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December EME EME database moved to new location –Install directory: inherent metadata.mdb has EPA information C:\Program Files\Innovate! Inc\EPA Metadata Editor\template\metadata.mdb *Copy/paste NJDEP metadata.mdb for clean version and to easily configure –Makes an operational copy of EME database in user directory, e.g., (e.g., C:\Document and Settings\username\Application Data\Innovate! Inc\(EPA ver) *Copy/paste NJDEP metadata.mdb for clean version and to easily configure Coordinate metadata with multiple users in your office! Have each modify the operational/user config.xml to point to alternative db location, e.g., H:\EME\metadata.mdb *NJDEP metadata.mdb: If changes made to directly to metadata.mdb and config.xml, best to close and open ArcCatalog

35 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME Access EME as an Extension from ArcCatalog Access EME as a standalone application –Start EPA Metadata Editor 6 December

36 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December

37 MD at ArcGIS 10 6 December Using the EME The EME Database –EME uses a Microsoft Access (2000) database to supply default information within the user interface –Database is structured to align closely with the flow of the user interface –Modify the database from the EME user interface –Change the location of the database as needed

38 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME Synchronization –Automatically insert data properties into metadata –Save time and ensures consistency with data –Particularly useful for coordinate system and spatial extent Non-compliant 6 December

39 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME 6 December The EPA Synchronizer –Lets users control which data properties are synchronized –Retain information for important elements –Avoid inserting unnecessary information –Access from EME Toolbar

40 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME Set EPA Synchronizer as default Select which attributes to synchronize Apply synchronization 6 December

41 MD at ArcGIS 10 Using the EME 6 December The EME Validator –Tests metadata records for compliancy with both FGDC and EPA requirements. –Validate records one at a time or with batch processing –Results of validation available in: EME user interface Web browser
