If you use or create spatial data then you should know how important metadata that describes your data is. How many times have you received a dataset from a colleague or downloaded it from the internet only to be left wondering what it actually represents, how it was collected and if it is both complete and fit for purpose?
Well metadata is important and geodoc is a service that helps users create metadata for spatial datasets by explaining fields in plain english. If you want to find out more about metadata and geodoc then you should watch this short video of a pecha kucha presentation given by EDINA’s resident metadata guru Tony Mathys. All you need to know about metadata and geodoc in 6 mins. Rock on Tony.
Note – the video is 50 mins long, but Tony is first up.
