Metadoor is a metadata entry tool whose output conforms to the Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata devised by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). The developer stopped active development on 2007, but the code is well documented, it is open source and available for download.
Metadoor uses pick lists to ease the metadata entry process. It also has collapsible form fields, providing the user a way to segment the documentation task without scrolling or shuffling through forms. Since it is not a desktop tool, it does not need platform or further software requirements. The metadata editor allows the user to download the final output as XML.
