As of last week we have successfully integrated about 20 records from the Oregon Spatial Data Library describing biological and ecological resources off the Oregon coast. This work was initiated as part of a FDGC CAP funding grant to the Oregon Coastal Management Program and the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The data is documented using FGDC metadata and includes web service links for many datasets. Explore the data at http://portal.westcoastoceans.org/discover/.
A free webinar “Introduction to Geospatial Metadata” presents the concept, principles, and value of metadata utilizing the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) metadata (http://www.ncddc.noaa.gov/metadata-standards/metadata-training).
