The FGDC is hosting a 2017 International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Metadata Summit on May 24, 2017 at USGS Headquarters in Reston Virginia. The purpose of the Summit is to improve geospatial data and services discovery and use for federal and non-federal National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) stakeholders and users. Attendees will participate in presentation and breakout sessions to share best practices and develop recommendations for the implementation of the ISO geospatial metadata content standard. The Summit will build upon the previous FGDC sponsored Metadata Workshops and focus on:
  • Identifying and addressing ISO metadata implementation issues
  • Developing ISO metadata implementation plans
  • Leveraging the Geospatial Platform to implement the standard and access services
  • Engaging participation in ISO metadata policies, tools, and, outreach
  • Sustaining implementation efforts
The Summit is open to all, but numbers will be limited. Attendees will be expected to participate in breakout sessions and actively engage in post-workshop implementation efforts. Remote access will be available for the presentations.
