To extract metadata from XML files in the MODS metadata format.

Step 1: Obtain a list of URLs for the XML files

This list may be supplied by the submitter or we may need to query the website to find them.

Step 2: Run the extraction script

  1. Start Jupyter Notebook and navigate to the Recipes directory.
  2. Open R-06-mods.ipynb
  3. Move the downloaded file arcHubs.csv into the same directory as the Jupyter Notebook.
  4. Run all cells.

Step 3: Format as OpenGeoMetadata

Manually adjust the names of the columns to match metadata into our GeoBTAA metadata template.

Step 4: Upload to GBL Admin
