Sorry for sending out the telecon information late. Here is the agenda for
tomorrow's telecon.



1. Latest on IT workshops, breakout session proposals for the Summer Meeting

2. Products and Services Proposal Discussion

Develop Re-usable Authoring Tools for FGDC/ISO-compliant Metadata

The ESIP Information Technology and Interoperability (IT&I) Committee
proposes the development of a suite of metadata authoring tools that will be
reusable across Earth science data repositories.   The tools will be
developed as a Drupal profile (GeoDrupal), that can be used by data
producers to create/author metadata information for geospatial data sets,
either through an easy-to-use, interactive, web-based interface, or by
uploading XML definitions.    The resulting metadata will be FGDC/ISO
compliant.  The software will be published and shared at
Drupal.org<http://drupal.org/> on
behalf of the ESIP Federation, making it freely available for deployment at
multiple sites. The modules necessary for this functionality will be
incrementally designed and implemented under the direction of the IT&I

ESIP Community Benefits: Provide re-usable metadata authoring tools.

Cost: $6K to develop, test and deploy within the Testbed portal

3.  ESIP Commons Publication – Live Alpha Test?
