NAP Editing Committee Meetings
           North American Profile - ISO 19115

• Goal.
  – Meet the geospatial metadata
    implementation needs of the US through
    the development of a Profile guidance
    document.
• Objectives.
  – Comprehensive profile.
  – Identical content with Canadian Profile.
  – Release by ANSI same date and time as
    CSB.
    • Results in North American Profile: NAP
                                ISO 19115

• Enables describing:
  – Geospatial data sets.
  – Maps.
  – Non-geospatial resources.
  – Services: portals, web mapping
    services.
         North American Profile: Approach

• No new attributes.
• Increase obligations.
• Modify codelists…deprecate
• Create new codelists for free text
  fields.
• Recommend structure with in text
  fields e.g. address.
• Modify/simplify diagrams.
• Adding best practices to guide
  implementation.

                                  Best Practice

• Create metadata as the project
  progresses
  – Information is at hand
  – Brain drain is at a minimum
  – Create Template
  – Internal use
  – Contracted Data
• Create Template
  – Internal use
  – Contracted Data
                                           Best Practice

• Metadata as a corporate resource.
  – Data on hand
    • Metadata assessment
    • Metadata Maitenance
       – Scheduling
       – Estimating staffing
       – Estimating time
  – Data to be procured
    • Contract Metadata
    • Provide contractor with template to assure content level
    • Metadata Maintenance
         NAP Editing Committee: Next Steps

    • Review of adjudication of comments.
    • Final edit prior to submission to standards bodies.

• US: Submission to American National
  Standards Institute: Fall 2007.
• ANSI review, vote, Adoption….?.
• FGDC Standards Working Group…
 FGDC Metadata Working Group: Next Steps


• Develop NAP training materials
  content outline for WG members
  review.
• Develop NAP modules for download.
  – Intro to ISO 19115
  – Intro to NAP
  – NAP Content
FGDC to ISO Conversion Tool Release – Fall 2007

• XML- conversion format.
• Conversion tool format: XSLT.
• Standalone.
• Plan to include source code.
• Conversion tool to be delivered via
  shareware site.
• Announced through FGDC.gov and FGDC
  Metadata Working Group.
                                  What to do for now
• Monitor fgdc.gov for Public Review
  announcement.
  – Announcement made directly to FGDC Metadata
    WG.
• Join/monitor FGDC Metadata Working
  Group/website
• NAP Training: Monitor
 http://www.fgdc.gov/training/nsdi-training-program/online-
 lessons
• Until ANSI adoption and FGDC recognition
  /adoption of NAP
  – Continue use of FGDC CSDGM
  – Post metadata to clearinghouses
  – Register clearinghouses to geodata.gov
    (Geospatial One-Stop).
