Abstract: The Metadata Wizard tool is designed as a resource to help geospatial data users with the creation and editing of metadata compliant with the Federal Geographic Data Committee's 'Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata' (FGDC-CSDGM).
After any existing metadata has been extracted from the input data set, the tool will supplement the spatial domain information and certain components of ... the spatial data organization, spatial reference, and entity/attribute sections of the metadata record with information inherent in the data set. Users will then be provided with two graphical user interfaces (GUIs) to enter additional metadata information. The first GUI captures information for the entity/attribute section (i.e., a description of the tabular data in the data, if applicable), while the second GUI allows a user to enter other general metadata information. While some defaults are provided, a user must ensure that all required fields are populated with valid information to produce a fully compliant metadata record of quality.
When the tool finishes running, a completed copy of the metadata file will be re-associated with the original input data set.
A copy of the original, unmodified metadata associated with a data set will also be saved to the 'Working Directory' as a stand-alone XML file.
