mdtranslator was written by the Alaska Data Integration Working Group (ADIwg) to assist researchers with authoring both spatial and non-spatial metadata for projects and datasets. Input to the mdtranslator is a JSON record conforming to the mdJson-schemas. The user can request the mdTranslator to translate the mdJson input into one or more established metadata standards. The mdTranslator currently supports translation to ISO 19115-2, ISO 19110, HTML, and mdJson 2x. The mdTranslator part of an open source architecture toolkit that allows developers to write additional readers and/or writers as may be required.
