In April 2010, the National Association of Regional Councils (NARC), in partnership with ESRI, received a Cooperative Agreement Program award from the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) to offer metadata training for regional councils. With FGDC’s support and ESRI’s technical expertise, NARC held a workshop at its 44th Annual Conference in Cleveland, OH, in June 2010, as well as a three-part webinar training series in July and August 2010. Below, you will find links to relevant training materials from each of these sessions. Click HERE to access general GIS resources for regional councils.

Collecting and Creating Accurate and Appropriate GIS Metadata
July 27, August 3 & August 10, 2010
NARC held a series of online training sessions via webinar in July and August 2010. The free trainings were conducted by Mr. Geoff Mortson, Consultant and Project Manager for ESRI’s spatial data infrastructure (SDI) solutions team, and supported by FGDC
The three-part webinar series provided attendees with a basic understanding of GIS metadata and its uses and functions in the context of regional planning, as well as an opportunity to test their new skills through online training exercises. Audio recordings of each session are available.
