Esri2EML and BDP2EML are very closely related programs for translating metadata from ESRI or FGDC and from Biological Data Profile (BDP) to Ecological Metadata Language (EML), version 2.0.1. Generally, these kinds of programs are called "crosswalks".
Mercury is a web-based system to search for metadata and retrieve associated data sets. The Mercury Metadata Editor creates a subset of standard FGDC metadata, along with data documentation that can be used in the Mercury search tool. The Mercury Metadata Editor:
Mercury is a web-based system to search for metadata and retrieve associated data. Mercury provides a single portal to information contained in disparate data management systems. It collects metadata and key data from contributing project servers distributed around the world and builds a centralized index. The Mercury search interfaces then allow the users to perform simple, fielded, spatial and temporal searches across these metadata sources.
Metavist is a metadata editor for the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) spatial metadata standard and for the Biological Data Profile.
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).
Tkme is a program for creating and modifying formal metadata that conforms to the Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata devised by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC). Tkme is related to its progenitor, Xtme which ran exclusively on Unix systems.
A collection of Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) for transforming between various metadata standards and views, and a tool for applying those transforms to metadata records stored in Web Accessible Folders (WAF, https://geo-ide.noaa.gov/wiki/index.php?title=Web_Accessible_Folder).
Xtme is a program for creating and modifying formal metadata that conforms to the Content Standards for Digital Geospatial Metadata devised by the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC)ÅÇ Xtme has a number of command line options and shortcuts to ease the navigation and editing among the information placeholders.
