CSW-4-Web is a proof-of-concept API designed to expose a CSW endpoint in a Web-friendly way, and enabling the exploration of its content without the need of specific client applications.

Basically, CSW-4-Web turns a CSW endpoint into a Web site, consisting of three main sections:

The ArcGIS Metadata Toolkit provides tools and documentation that let you create and share custom metadata styles that use the validation capabilities provided in the ArcGIS metadata editor with the ArcMap, ArcCatalog and ArcGlobe ArcGIS for Desktop.


The Batch Metadata Modifier Tool allows knowledgeable metadata professionals to modify individual or multiple XML files simultaneously.

The tool has find / replace capabilities, can delete metadata elements, and can import metadata elements from external files.

It can be run as an ArcGIS Add-In or as a stand-alone Windows executable.  Thumbnails can also be generated for a batch of selected geodatabase objects within ArcCatalog.


Isogeo is a web application that allows you to manage and share a comprehensive, up-to-date and documented catalog of yout GIS data. 

Isogeo is a software solution for cataloging and sharing GIS data. It can be used to:

The INSPIRE GeoDCAT-AP Sandbox allows browsing as Linked Data a snapshot of the metadata records published by the INSPIRE Geoportal, or directly to query them through its SPARQL endpoint.

The GeoDCAT-AP API is a proof-of-concept of the implementation of GeoDCAT-AP in an OGC CSW (Catalog Service for the Web), re-using the standard CSW interface, and supporting in addition HTTP content negotiation.

More precisely, GeoDCAT-API uses the standard CSW parameters outputSchema and outputFormat to determine, respectively, (a) the GeoDCAT-AP profile to be used (core or extended), and (b) the RDF serialisation to be returned.

This XSLT is a proof of concept for the implementation of the specification concerning the geospatial profile of DCAT-AP (GeoDCAT-AP), available on Joinup, the collaboration platform of the EU ISA2 Programme:

smart.finder SDI (formerly known as "terraCatalog") offers a powerful and scalable metainformation system based on open standards.


CatMDEdit is a metadata editor tool that facilitates the documentation of resources, with a special focus on the description of geographic information resources. It provides an INSPIRE view od the editor to comply with the  INSPIRE implementing rules for metadata and with Water Framework Directive (WISE).
