So I've been working on a large data consolidation project for my agency to aid in a new project.
A general workflow may be, find a data layer in an existing file geodatabase or .sde or online
add that data to a map, copy it, make changes to that data and copy it once more into a different file geodatabase
I will add the final dataset to a map in ArcGIS Pro. Designate that the layer has its own metadata, or copy its original, and then click ok.
When i remove that layer from the map and open its proeprties, the metadata is GONE!
My first time really doing "good metadata" entry, and am wondering if I'm just missing something?
