DBFmeta: A tool to help document DBF files
Entry ID: USGS_DBFmeta


Summary
Abstract: DBFmeta is a software tool designed to facilitate the documentation of data contained in DBF files. These data files are increasingly common because they are used to store attributes of geographic features in shapefiles used and produced by ESRI products. DBFmeta comes with mp, a parser for formal metadata, and is most effectively used with Tkme, an editor for formal metadata.
