Project Summary Sheet
Fiscal Year 2004 Study Summary Report
Study Title: South Florida Information Management: Metadata Management and Maintenance
Overview & Objective(s):
Recent Products: Updated metadata records that are posted on the SOFIA website at http://sofia.usgs.gov.
Planned Products: A combined poster on the SOFIA website, metadata, database, and graphic data interface to be presented at the National Conference on Ecosystem Restoration, December 2004, a fact sheet on metadata for the Greater Everglades PES projects and data sets, and probably demonstrations on the SOFIA website including the metadata.
Specific Relevance to Information Needs Identified in DOI's Science Plan in Support of Ecosystem Restoration, Preservation, and Protection in South Florida (DOI's Everglades Science Plan) [See Plan on SOFIA's Web site: http://sofia.usgs.gov/publications/reports/doi-science-plan/]:
The metadata portion of SOFIA supports all the projects and data sets that have resulted from the USGS studies in the Greater Everglades. Executive Order 12906 mandates that all Federally-produced data available on the Internet has to have FGDC-compliant metadata accompanying it. Good, complete FGDC-compliant metadata facilitate the applicability of the USGS science to multiple DOI restoration objectives or multiple projects by allowing potential users of the data to discover and evaluate the data for use in projects. Project metadata aids science coordination across bureaus or with DOI's CERP partners by documenting current and prior research efforts to avoid duplication of research projects
