Metadata standard market launch

During the project period the standardization of ISO TC211 19115 was in progress and was finalised in 2003. This standard is considered to homogenise the market for describing geographical data. INVISIP supported the distribution of this standard in the partner countries (Germany, Poland, Sweden and Poland) by dissemination activities, e.g. fairs, and by introducing metadata tools in institutions in the partner countries.

Therefore, an existing tool (Metadata EntryTool) was translated into Polish, Swedish and Italian to improve the usability and catalyse the usage of ISO 19115.
