   Meta-Door is a second generation metadata
    entry tool which extends the capabilities of
    an earlier developed Meta-Door 1.0 and
    Cast-Net
   Currently provides FGDC compliant
    metadata records for FGDC Clearinghouse
    search
   Developed as an online application and an
    open source project
