XML Parser. XML Parser software was written with Visual Studio 2005 by Kit Na Goh, a MS student at the GIS TReC. This software takes ArcXML-based metadata documents and writes the information contained in these files into a fully relational database. The database is built upon the MS Access Jet Database engine and was designed using IBM Rational Rose UML modeling software. The database model and schema are available at for download. To learn more about this project read "Developing a Geospatial Search Tool Using a Relational Database Implementation of the FGDC CSDGM Model".
