     • MVC framework for extensibility and
     minimizing maintenance overhead
     • Cross-platform programming language (Java)

         User organization

• Self-registration at:
  http://www.caro-coope.org/meta-door2
• Users are organized into groups
• A user can be a member of one group only
• Users can have permissions to:
  o   Create platform and sensors
  o   Publish own FGDC records
  o   Publish own group FGDC records
  o   Manage group members and warrant permissions
Joining a group
                  A user can be a
                  member of one
                  group only

                  A group
                  administrator can
                  attach a user to
                  his own group

Group members who have
group publishing
permissions can publish or
deny publishing requests

• Collapsible forms organized into tabbed
  sections
• Fields are color coded by requirement needs
• Help context link for each field
• Calendar for date entries
• Drop-down menus for fast data entry
• Different modes for editing and viewing
• Data records are searchable by keywords
           Metadata management
Two ways to create a metadata record:
   • Upload an FGDC-compliant XML file
   • Enter the metadata manually using the metadata forms
       Metadata validation

• USGS tool to validate FGDC records
• MP Error report




• Links for error
descriptions
        Metadata Import
• Records can be viewed in multiple formats
  (xml, html, txt, dif, faq)
• Records can be imported in XML format.
          Metadata publishing
• Users who have publishing permissions can
publish their own records




• Users who don’t have publishing permissions can

• Instruments history management
Platforms management

                  In the platform
                  detail page,
                  user can

                           Users can attach
                           sensors and
                           sensor groups to
                           a platform from
                           available sensors




Sensors can’t be
attached to more than
one group or platform
at a time
                 Sensors
In the sensor
detail page,
users can edit
sensor
information
(measures,
manufacturer,
