New release of CatMDEdit

by Fco. Javier Zarazaga-Soria

We proudly announce that the new release of CatMDEdit is officially available under an open source license.

CatMDEdit is a metadata editor tool that facilitates the documentation of resources, with special focus on the description of geographic information resources. It is an initiative of the National Geographic Institute of Spain (IGN), which is the result of the scientific and technical collaboration between IGN and the Advanced Information Systems Group (IAAA) of the University of Zaragoza with the technical support of GeoSpatiumLab (GSL).

The new features included in the new release are:

- Metadata edition in conformance with “ISO19115. Geographic Information – Metadata” following the new Implementing Rules for the NEM metadata profile. NEM (“Núcleo Español de Metadatos”) is a recommendation defined by the Spanish National Geographical High Board (“Consejo Superior Geográfico”).
- Description of services by means of metadata in compliance with the  metadata implementing rules of the INSPIRE directive. The metadata model proposed follows the  guidelines for mapping the metadata implementing rules to ISO 19115/19119.
- Automatic metadata generation from the “getCapabilities” operation supported by a service that complies with the OGC Specifications (WMS, CSW, WFS, WCS or WPS).
