[ESIP-all] Metadata Editor Presentation on P&S telecon, May 14 @ 3pm ET

Typically we don't send the Products & Services telecon notices to ESIP All, but we will have a presentation on this month's telecon that may be of cross-cutting interest to several folks.  In particular see the information below about Jerry Pan's presentation on the reusable metadata editor.  This is a task that has been developed as a task in the ESIP Testbed.  The ESIP Testbed is essentially managed by the P&S committee, but the tasks/functionality that are developed and tested there are sponsored by all the other ESIP interest groups.  In this case the metadata editor functionality was sponsored by the Information Technology and Interoperability Committee.  Please look over the description below and consider calling in for Jerry's presentation, and other agenda items, if it looks to be of interest.

Testbed Presentation Series: Jerry Pan presents the IT&I sponsored Metadata Editor functionality
Re-usable Metadata Editor

(Jerry Yun Pan, Nigel Banks) 
Develop a generic, reusable software system to facilitate the support for multiple metadata standards and their variations. The tool will be flexible and reusable for multiple metadata standards, and allows an administrator to design and tailor the metadata authoring tool/editor according to the targeted metadata schema without writing new code. The core of the tool suite consists of two parts: (1) a designing tool for "super" users who are responsible for designing the metadata editors, and (2) a rendering engine that makes use of a pre-made metadata editor definition. The designing tool defines a metadata editor based on user inputs and saves the definition for reuse. The rendering engine makes use of the definitions to facilitate metadata authoring and editing. The "editor-of-editors" is schema driven. The design tool allows for the selection of a subset of a whole schema (a "profile") to form an editor, or the selection of an extension of a schema. The editor definitions can be exported and shared among multiple installations.
