Supplemental Metadata

All other forms of metadata, such as ISO 19139, FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata, attribute table definitions, or custom schemas are treated as Supplemental Metadata.

  • Supplemental Metadata is not usually edited directly for inclusion in the project.
  • If this metadata is available as XML or HTML, it can be added as a hosted link for the Metadata preview tool in GeoBlacklight.
  • XML or HTML files can be parsed to extract metadata that forms the basis for the item’s GeoBlacklight schema record.
  • The file formats that can be viewed within the geoportal application include:
    • ISO 19139 XML
    • FGDC XML
    • MODS XML
    • HTML (any standard)
