Metadata Entry Tools
The BlueNet Metadata Entry and Search Tool (MEST) is based on GeoNetwork version 2.2. The modifications support the following profiles of the ISO19115 geographic metadata standard:
- ANZLIC Metadata Profile (version 1.1)
- Australian Marine Community Profile (MCP) (version 1.4 using ISO19139)
- Australian Defence Organisation (ADO) Profile
- World Meteorological Organsation (WMO) Profile.
The ANZMet Lite metadata collection tool is a basic, standalone application that supports the creation of an ANZLIC-compliant metadata record. The application is designed to self-install once the file has been unzipped and selected. Documentation is available here.

Controlled vocabularies previously used by the ANZLIC Metadata Guidelines (version 2.0; February 2001) can be used in ANZLIC Metadata Profile XML. These codelists are available in the appropriate XML format as defined in ISO/TS 19139:2007.
The following XSL converts compliant ANZLIC Metadata Guidelines (version2.0) metadata XML to ANZLIC Metadata Profile (version 1.1) XML.
The ANZLIC Schematron files are provided to developers to facilitate testing of conditional elements of the ANZLIC Profile. Schematron code is designed to verify that where an ANZLIC Profile conditional element has been completed, that any/all subsequent dependent elements have also been completed. It will report any errors or omissions.
NOTE 1 your parser must use ISO Schematron, XSLT 2.0 and XPATH 2.0 to properly apply these rules
NOTE 2 validation against the ISO 19139 XSDs is expected before validation using the above XML
The following XML document provide examples that demonstrate XLINK and inheritance information.
