METAMOD is a portal solution providing Discovery, Access and Retrieve functionality for scientific datasets along with tools for DAR metadata like automatic extraction, manual editing, and conversion between different formats. Metadata can be converted to different formats and exposed using different search interfaces, i.e. ISO23950 and OAI-PM. It has been designed to be easily integratable with OpENDAP or FTP data servers, and allows data to be uploaded through FTP and HTTP interfaces. A WMS client is built in for visualizing the data.
CWIS (Collection Workflow Integration System) is a software package designed to help assemble, organize, and share information about resources online. The software conforms to international and academic standards for metadata while providing turnkey setup and a user-friendly interface, allowing resource collection developers (and end users) to focus on what they want to share (or find) without worrying about the technical details. It provides extensive support for cataloging resources with standardized metadata, which can then be automatically shared via an array of channels out to the larger Internet community, helping others find your work.
