mp (Metadata Parser)

mp (metadata parser) is a compiler to parse formal metadata, checking the syntax against the FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata and generating output suitable for viewing with a web browser or text editor. mp generates a textual report indicating errors in the metadata, primarily in the structure but also in the values of some of the scalar elements (that is, those whose values are restricted by the standard). mp can read indented text (compliant to a strict format -FGDC style- encoded as plain text) or XML. As a standalone tool, it can be operated at the DOS Shell prompt.
