Metadata Enterprise Resource Management Aid
Entry ID: MERMAid
Abstract: The National Coastal Data Development Center (NCDDC) provides coastal data resources (organizations and individuals) with a tool to develop, validate, manage and publish metadata records via secure internet access. The Metadata Enterprise Resource Management Aid (MERMAid) allows users/data providers to establish unlimited metadata databases to organize their metadata records any way they see fit ... (i.e. by program, project, data type, personnel). Some of the key features in MERMAid include (1) user-defined roles and permissions at the metadata management and database levels; (2) change tracking; and (3) enhanced validation. Also, your existing FGDC compliant metadata (in XML format) can be ingested into and managed through MERMAid.
In the near future, NCDDC will be shifting from its current metadata catalog to a knowledge base catalog. MERMAid will play an integral role in this transition. To better leverage these new capabilities, enhanced search and discovery tools will be made available to the public and metadata managers that will provide powerful drill-down features.
