FCE LTER Information Management System (IMS) Overview

FCE Data Management

FCE Information Management System Metadata

The FCE IMS has full adopted the LTER network metadata standard Ecological Metadata Language (EML) version 2.1.0 and all FCE public tabular data are accompanied by a Level 5 (data identification, discovery, evaluation, access and integration) EML (XML) metadata documents. FCE public data and EML documents and are ingested into the LTER network PASTA system and FCE EML metadata are harvested into the Metacat XML database. A two-part tool called Excel2EML was developed by the IMS group to facilitate metadata collection. Researchers are able to enter metadata into an MS Excel spreadsheet and submit the information together with their data. The information manager then converts the MS Excel spreadsheet into a valid EML XML document using a Perl application.
