CaMM, MiraMon Metadata Catalog for geospatial data: a Corporative Implementation

Julią N., Masó J. and Zabala A.

A solution for cataloging geospatial metadata and a web search interface for a corporative collection of datasets has been designed and implemented as a web service.

The tool (CaMM) is a Win32 application that fills a database designed to be compliant with the schema and core elements of ISO 19115 and, in addition, to include extended information (the model used by MiraMon Metadata and Database Relationships Manager, GeMM) like remote sensing parameters, hierarchical keywords and the alphanumeric database description.
