A server based solution for creating, editing and managing spatial metadata


Metadata provides valuable information about data which an organisation may hold or access. Knowing where to find data and what it consists of, is a precondition for greater data sharing. Cadcorp provides powerful tools for the creation and management of a metadata repository: tools which support both the publication and consumption of spatial data.

A standards based architecture

Cadcorp holds metadata in a centralised repository on a geospatial server - Cadcorp GeognoSIS®. The repository is accessed through the Open Geospatial Consortium Catalog Server (Web) interface ('CS-W'). This is recognised as the preferred interface for an open and accessible metadata repository, providing a published query and update interface which is accessible through the web. Users can create, search, view, edit, import and export metadata from any Cadcorp SIS desktop product on the network. They can also search the repository from a web browser, using OpenSearch.

Supported commands

All of the following commands are available to the Cadcorp SIS desktop user:

  • Harvest
  • Import
  • Administration
  • Search
  • Create
  • View
  • Edit
  • Export
