Work plan

  • Summarize what guidance is available
  • Identify the dependencies between the WIS metadata and other infrastructure and activities
  • Seek feedback from users
  • Review training materials and ask trainers for feedback given to them by trainees
  • List what is required in metadata records for them to be useful to users.
  • List what is required in metadata records for them to be useful for search.
  • Catalogue the tools available to help users to create metadata records.
  • Catalogue other tools to assist with metadata management (eg the validators)
  • Provide a communication system with trainers to help them keep their content up to date (and to learn from them).
  • Update the wiki and other resources to make them consistent – can an alerting mechanism be provided to notify users and authors of changes in the documentation?
  • Define how metadata will be assessed, and implement mechanisms to perform the assessment that can be integrated with the operations of the GISCs and the WIS monitoring.
