The metadata community has taken two new software projects under its wing: GeoMetaFacet and GEO label Java.

GeoMetaFacet

GeoMetaFacet  is a web client to explore and visualize geodata. It focuses on a user-friendly and interactive navigation through the metadata and allows the user to quickly get an overview of data that is available via an OGC compliant Web Catalog Service (CSW). Core features of GeoMetaFacet are an interactive data lineage graph and a hierarchy tree, which can be used to evaluate available data. Furthermore several map functionalities, e.g. time series data visualization and geographic search with gazetteer Geonames, are integrated into the web client.

GEO label Java

The GEO label is an interactive visual summary of geospatial metadata to facilitate search and discovery use cases. It generates a visual summary based on standardized metadata documents (ISO19115, FGDC, SensorML, GeoViQua Quality Information Model) and can be easily integrated into any website as an interactive SVG.

Within the research project GeoViQua, members of the metadata community developed a Java-based GEO label server implementation that can generate GEO labels on-the-fly based on metadata documents.
