Event Title

Modular, Distributed Spatial Metadata Repository on the Services Principle

Description

Despite major improvements in GIS technologies in recent years, it remains particularly difficult to efficiently locate geospatial data. Purdue Libraries, in keeping with their efforts to build a distributed, cross-discipline data repository, is nearing an alpha release of a metadata portal through which large amounts of base data as well as Purdue-produced geospatial data can be located, downloaded or connected to. GIS Librarian Miller will discuss the project and how it might interact with existing campus systems.
