Metador is a metadata editor. Metadata for geodata. It is well-adaptable to various metadata formats, also organisation-internal formats. You can export into various formats. And you can configure validation.
So… what will be new in metador 2.1 (expected later this year):
The plugin system is now available.
Validation. Internally inside the program mostly for required fields or the correct xml format. You can let external checkers (INSPIRE, for instance) validate it, too.
More helpers in the user interface.
Metador can cooperate with a CSW (‘catalog services for the web’) via an export. Newer versions will provide the CSW protocol itself.
