ABSTRACT: This talk will cover examples of current practices and trends in creating and maintaining digital geospatial metadata by State and Local governments. Brief case studies on a selected subset of representative State governments from different parts of the Nation will be presented, along with a selected subset of Local governments of various sizes and sophistication. Common characteristics across regions and levels of government will be discussed, including natural language descriptive metadata as well as formatted metadata (i.e. FGDC/ISO). Emerging trends and/or noteworthy developments will be covered, including: Convergence of geospatial with open data; curated data collections; metadata viewing; data storytelling; data profiling; and the use of GitHub as a metadata repository.
