The mdJson format is a simple JSON format for documenting and
exchanging information about scientific projects and data.
The Alaska Data Integration working group (ADIwg) wrote the standard to support translation to complex standards such as the ISO 19115-2 Geographic Metadata standard and FGDC’s Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata. The mdJson standard remains independent of any published standards while comprehensive enough to support translation to many established standards. The mdJson record is also a convenient format to exchange directly with other organizations as the JSON structure is easily created and ingest by modern programming languages.
The mdJson format is fully documented on the interactive mdTools website.Fork me on GitHub
