FGDC 931 Metadata Refresh

Idea created by curtvprice Champion on Jan 26, 2011
    For a qhile Feds are required to support FGDC metadata, and we want to post 9.3.1 format datasets (including metadata). This can't be done without 9.3.1 at this time, because there is no refresh capability.

    We appreciate the fact the 931 FGDC metadata can be viewed by turning on that metadata style in the application options, and that a 931 FGDC metadata add-on editor is available for download. But we can't manually enter everything in the FGDC metadata that the software can pre-fill for us.

    However, we need a way to populate all the FGDC elements possible automatically without having to use ArcCatalog 9.3.1. A tool that replicates the refresh button in ArcCatalog 9.3.1 would do the trick.
