“A WEB APPLICATION DESIGNED TO CAPTURE AND DISTRIBUTE METADATA. IT IS BASED ON ISO AND INSPIRE STANDARDS, AND ALLOWS ORGANISATIONS TO SHARE ACCESS TO LARGE DATA CATALOGUES.”
What data do I have?
How do I get access?
How accurate is the data?
How do I share the data?
As organisations and agencies develop increasingly large repositories of data, it becomes more important to capture information on this data. This information, known as metadata, facilitates searching, browsing and sharing of data. Metadata ensures the right data is vailable to the right people at the right time. Accurate metadata can also identify redundancy or use of inappropriate versions of the information reducing costs or improving decision making.
Dynamic User Interface
The web interface has been built using the latest Web 2.0 technologies and provides a rich user interface. The application is intuitive and guides a user through capture and discovery of metadata within the catalog.
Whilst the application has a rich user interface it has still been designed with web accessibility in mind. The interface can be hosted for public or partner access and continue to conform to many web accessibility standards.
The Web Service API provides a set of secure platform independent tier for interoperability with all corporate systems. The Web Services can be integrated as part of a larger Service Orientated Architecture (SOA) environment and provide contextual information for address or mapping data in back office applications.
An Increasingly Valuable Tool
Metadata helps describe the value of information and how it contributes to the business. Metadata is the new key analysis and decision making tool. It is the only approach to allow further decisions to be made with respect to data accuracy, risk, ownership and cost of the information.
