Come get the update on what's happening with metadata. Representatives from the FGDC and ISO metadata working groups will be on hand, and we'll hear also from practitioners in the field! Esri will of course also give us an update on metadata developments in the ArcGIS platform.

Hi everyone. When downloading a dataset from the ArcGIS Online Open Data portal as Shapefile, there is a metadata file as XML included. Taking this file and trying to upload it in the meta data editor in ArcGIS Online, the error "The chosen file does not seem to be an ArcGIS format" occurs. So ArcGIS Online does not create ISO 19139 valid… (Show more)
