The Master Archive Collection Inventory (MACI) project at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) is an effort to re-inventory all digital holdings to streamline data set and product titles and update documentation to discovery level ISO 199115-2. Subject Matter Experts (SME) are being identified for each of the holdings and will be responsible for creating and maintaining metadata records. New user-friendly tools are available for the SMEs to easily create and update this documentation. Updated metadata will be available for retrieval by other aggregators and discovery tools, increasing the usability of NCDC data and products.
