Abstract

Aiming to encourage the reuse and prevent wasting resources in the production of spatial data, in 2008, the Brazilian government edited Act 6,666, instituting the National Spatial Data Infrastructure (Infraestrutura Nacional de Dados Espaciais - INDE). To meet the need of geospatial data documentation, the INDE defined the Brazilian Geospatial Metadata (MGB) profile based on ISO 19115:2003. This paper describes the development of edpMGB, a metadata editor for the MGB profile. The editor is open-source and is being released in the cloud via Web following the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, so it can be accessed from any point on the Internet, requiring only a Web browser. This editor was developed on the scope of the research and development project (R&D) Geoportal Cemig – SDI-based corporate GIS (Geoportal Cemig - SIG corporativo baseado em IDE), whose objective is the implementation of a corporate SDI for the Minas Gerais Power Company (Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais - Cemig).
