Last week I was able to attend a ‘Geospatial Metadata & Spatial Data Workshop’ in Cambridge University run by Tony Mathys of EDINA. The course was an introduction to geospatial metadata along with how to use the online suite of tools called GoGeo for discovery, documenting and access to spatial data. This was of particular relevance to this project. This course was very useful in providing me with information on methods and best practice for recording research metadata. I have been able to pass some of this information on to colleagues and students within IGES and this will hopefully encourage them to use GoGeo for themselves.
