Please join us on Tuesday July 28th at 10am for the next installment of the West Coast Ocean Data Network Technical Training webinar series. This webinar will provide an overview, review, and demonstration of several desktop and web-based geospatial metadata creation tools. There are tools for creating both for ISO 19115 and FGDC CSDGM metadata standard documents. We will describe pros and cons of the tools, as well as specific tips and tricks as they relate to creating metadata for the West Coast Ocean Data Portal. We hope you can join!
Allison Bailey has always enjoyed wandering around in swamps and on the beach. Naturally, she gravitated towards a career in marine science where she could scuba dive in kelp beds and drive a motorboat along the shores Puget Sound. Once she discovered tools such as GPS, GIS, and remote-sensing, her days in the field were numbered. She particularly enjoys collaborating with scientists and resource managers to harness appropriate technology for the study and protection of marine and coastal ecosystems. In the past, Allison worked as a marine scientist and GIS specialist for state and federal government. She currently runs her own business, Sound GIS, (www.soundgis.com).
