This wiki contains information on a wide variety of standards and tools being considered, used
 
or developed across NOAA and in the environmental data community. Organizing this information
 
and making it easy to find is a challenge. The wiki provides Categories
 
to help this process (see Wikipedia [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Category Categories Page] for information about using categories). The Categories link in the navigation menu on the left links to the
 
[[Special:Categories | Categories List]] from any page in the wiki. Please try using it to find information and help others by connecting pages you create to appropriate categories.
 
  
The largest category contains pages with information about the [https://geo-ide.noaa.gov/wiki/index.php?title=Category:ISO_19115 ISO 19115] metadata standard. There is also an [[ISO FAQ]] page with simple answers to frequently asked questions.

Welcome to NOAA’s GEO-IDE Guidelines and Best Practices Wiki

This wiki contains information on a wide variety of standards and tools being considered, used or developed across NOAA and in the broader environmental data management community. It is intended to help you find resources and connect to others in order to improve the access, interoperability, and usability of environmental information.

The wiki makes use of “Categories” to help organize and manage content (see Wikipedia Categories Page for information about using categories). The Categories link in the navigation menu on the left links to the Categories List from any page in the wiki. See using the GEO-IDE wiki page for additional tips on using the wiki.

Please contact Lewis McCulloch (lewis.mcculloch@noaa.gov) or Ted Habermann (ted.habermann@noaa.gov) if you have questions, suggestions, or would like to contribute to this wiki.
