I have recently began testing the installation and use of ArcGIS 10 for my organization. I was unpleasantly surprised to see that the metadata and its associated tools have been drastically changed. I can no longer view many of the metadata elements that were easily accessed through ArcCatalog. ESRI has migrated to the metadata to only ArcGIS metadata format.
I am requesting that the option to use FGDC format for metadata still be made available for users who are accustomed to that format.
