Event Details


The Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) is hosting a one day meeting intended to bring NSDI Stakeholders up to date on International Organization for Standardization (ISO) metadata, identify challenges, and set a course for implementation. The meeting includes:

  • ISO and ISO North American Profile (NAP) Metadata Standards Status Update
  • Group Discussions: Issues Related to ISO Implementation
  • Group Discussions: Common Solutions to Address Issues
  • Group Discussion: Priorities and Recommendations

A follow-up WebEx meeting will be held to present the results of the Summit and to solicit additional input. 


Attendees should have ISO metadata hands-on knowledge sufficient to effectively contribute toward the identification of key issues, generation of options for addressing key issues, and the development of strategic solutions. This is a highly interactive working meeting and participants are expected to contribute to both the discussions and the action items.

Participation is limited to 50 attendees and pre-registration is required.  25 seats will be held for FGDC Member Agencies until October 3. At that point the remaining seats will be released and available for other attendees. Non-Federal participants who are part of the FGDC metadata working group are encouraged to attend.

Registration and additional Summit information will be available soon through the FGDC website at


For those interested, an optional ISO Training Session will be held one day prior to the Summit.

Introduction to ISO Metadata 

A one day ISO metadata training class will be held Wednesday, October 26, 2011 (the day before the Metadata Summit) at the USGS Headquarters Building in Reston, Virginia from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.  This class will introduce the ISO standard, its components, and provide information on its use.  This class is not a prerequisite for the Summit. However, participants in the training should plan to attend the Summit. Attendance is limited to 20 participants and pre-registration is required.
