Assume there are two (2) stakeholders who contribute for providing Geospatial data of a particular layer.
The North-half and the South-half of the layer are regularly updated and provided by Stakeholder A & Stakeholder B respectively. Both Stakeholders updates metadata too and supply each time.
At National level, we need to merge layers supplied by Stakeholder A & B for making it available to the public / other stakeholders thru Geoportal.
Now the question is, how to deal with Metadata?
- Do we need to merge metadata?
- If we need not to disturb the metadata then how to display it in public domain while complying OGC / ISO Standards.
- We should not collect metadata from the stakeholders and we should enable them to publish their own geospatial data services and upload metadata on the Metadata Portal
