The OpenMetadata.org launch will take place during the IASSIST (International Association for Social Science Information Services and Technology (IASSIST) Conference in Washington, DC.
IASSIST 2012 will also mark the launch of OpenMetadata.org, a new web portal, supported and operated by Metadata Technology and its partner Integrated Data Management Services (IDMS), aiming to provide online access to standards based data/metadata services and to development tools and libraries for the management of statistical data.
The initial release of the OpenMetadata.org portal includes:
- A DDI based catalog of surveys driven by metadata harvested from public repositories around the globe, providing access to information around thousands of surveys and millions of variables.
- OMAD: an interactive directory of statistical agencies containing profile information for hundreds of organizations involved in the production, management, and access of official statistics. The agency directory service goes beyond the simple address book concept and will facilitate the discovery and access to standards based online data services.
