Metadata Committee (SMAC)


The ad-hoc Metadata Committee was established by the Statewide Mapping Advisory Committee in August 2012. The purpose of the committee is to recommend ways to expand and improve geospatial metadata in North Carolina that are both efficient for the data producer and beneficial for data users in discovery and application of geospatial data. Efforts include recommending practices and training GIS data managers to apply the N.C. State and Local Government Metadata Profile and other metadata resources.
