collecting metadata within your organization - best practices

Question asked by amy.gwin on Dec 27, 2017

Hi! I'm looking for tips on the best way to collect metadata from spatial contributors in your organization? What has worked for you?

  • Email a basic form/list of key questions? (purpose of app, key words, sensitive/open etc)
  • View new items that week, and contact publisher?
  • Enforce that metadata be updated before publishing?

With the increase of #arcgisonline and soon the story maps of  #insights and apps being produced quickly each week will double or triple in count, what is the best way to collect metadata information? I am walking a fine line between encouraging users to contribute, then enforcing (researching) metadata on their contributions. Without the metadata, the contributions are less apt to be used, or considered valid.
