ncISO is a package of tools that facilitates the generation of ISO 19115-2 metadata from data in NetCDF (Network common data format).
These data must be included in a Thematic Realtime Environmental Distributed Data Service (THREDDS) data server catalog. ncISO is based on the Unidata Attribute Convention for Data Discovery (http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf-java/formats/DataDiscoveryAt...).
There are currently two tools available, first a command line utility that can be run on your local desktop or workstation, and second a THREDDS server extension library. This utility is also included in the THREDDS Data Server.
Inputs to this tool are THREDDS catalogs.
Outputs from the tool are ISO metadata in XML format.
