NMMR is deprecated - see history tab for previous content.
-
===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
Fixes to Aggregation Info, Ephemeris in template and validation; fix Theme Keyword microinterface. NMMR For Dummies. Metadata Extensions display.
+
-
 
+
-
*Aggregation Information and Container Packet ID have been made optional, repeatable elements, to match FGDC spec.
+
-
*Change "ephemeris" to "ephem" to match FGDC RSE spec
+
-
*A bug has been fixed where an empty Thesaurus name could cause the Theme Keyword microinterface to crash.
+
-
*Added "NMMR For Dummies (The Five-Minute NMMR)" to the User's Guide
+
-
*Metadata Extensions and Profile Names now display correctly in FGDC TEXT view.
+
-
 
+
-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
Record set grouping; Metadata Date in Search; Platform, Mission, Instrument Info fixes; URL access and search; GCMD harvest, FGDC Clearinghouse, NMMR Services.
+
-
 
+
-
*The order of the Record Sets on the Home page has been changed to move the more active record sets to the top, and to group the component record sets together. Initially, you may be disoriented finding your favorite record sets, but it should be easier in the long run.
+
-
*Metadata Date is now displayed in Search Results by default, instead of Last Modified. Last Modified was an internal Blue Angel database date that could change for many other reasons than actual metadata content change, and so could be misleading. Metadata Date will only change when a metadata manager actually changes content and clicks "Update Record". Last Modified is still available as an optional Search Results column.
+
-
*All 700+ Instrument Information records have had <Instrument-Name> elements moved to <instflm> elements. This is to be consistent with FGDC structure and naming conventions. The content has been preserved, and 90 affected records in NGDC, DART_BPR and record sets have been republished to reflect the change.
+
-
*Platform Name, Mission Name and Instrument Name are now optional elements.
+
-
*Tasks, microinterfaces and validation schemas have all been fixed to be compatible with these changes.
+
-
*URL access and search for Published records is available at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/metadata/published/
+
-
*The "NGDC" record set is now being harvested by GCMD (using rsync).
+
-
*The "NGDC" record set is now being searched by the FGDC Clearinghouse
+
-
*NMMR Services: Getting metadata records out of the NMMR is available at http://www.ngdc.noaa.gov/metadata/NMMRservices.html

+
-
Platform/Mission/Instrument Task Edit, TEXT view Platform Info fix
+
-
 
+
-
*Platform, Mission, Instrument Info Task: add Edit existing elements
+
-
*XML-to-TEXT fix: missing element names in text format in Platform Info section
+
-
 
+
-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
NCDC RSE, DART_BPR config, Ephemeris XML fix, Z39.50 Validated records
+
-
 
+
-
*Configure NCDC RSE record set to use a primaryKey of noaainfo/entry to save files for rsync
+
-
*Configure DART_BPR record set to use a primaryKey of idinfo/datsetid to save files for rsync
+
-
*Other minor configuration fixes.
+
-
*Fix an incorrect XML element name for Ephemeris in Blue Angel Repository.
+
-
*Fix Z39.50 server to only retrieve Published records; it was incorrectly retrieving Validated records.
+

===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
New Platform, Mission, Instrument Info Task
+
-
 
+
-
*New Task and microinterfaces for Platform, Mission, Instrument Info sections
+
-
**This will considerably simplify the entry of these important new sections in record sets using the FGDC Remote Sensing Extensions.
+
-
 
+
-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
"depth encoding" validation, Oracle 10.1.0.5, NESDIS_Products rsync, Instrument Info Search+Replace, nightly archive
+
-
 
+
-
*Fix validation for "depth encoding" element. The schema validation was correct according to the FGDC spec, but the metadata dictionary (in Blue Angel Repository) was using Title Case for possible values.
+
-
*Upgraded local database server from Oracle 10.1.0.4 to 10.1.0.5 (this broke the Z39.50 server, but it is now fixed.)
+
-
*"NESDIS_Products" records published for rsync (CLASS) now have file names based on (first) Resource Description, freeing Dataset ID to become a globally- unique identifier.
+
-
*Fix Search and Replace for Instrument Info record set (an incorrect XML element name in Blue Angel Repository).
+
-
*Fix nightly archive script, which saves all NMMR records as XML. It was pointing at the old database server.
+

===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
Schema Validation, Quick Retrieve fixes; Tasks button removed from Search Results page.
+
-
 
+
-
*Schema Validation fixes for Algorithm Information, Raster Object Type
+
-
**For Algorithm Information, make Change History mandatory.
+
-
**For Raster Object Type, add "Swath" to available values in drop-down menu.
+
-
*Remove "Task" button from Actions toolbar in Search Results page.
+
-
**These Tasks assume they are working with a single record. They do not (and probably never did) work for multiple selections. All these Tasks are available independently from the Edit page of any record. Multiple validations may be performed from the Workflow/Draft menu.
+
-
*Delete Records confirmation page now provides timing information.
+
-
 
+
-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
State change emails, microinterfaces fixed, NCDC RSE record set, Java 1.5/Oracle 10g/memory
+
-
 
+
-
*Record state change notification emails now will display the Abstract, since this is (probably) unique and human-readable.
+
-
*Fix broken microinterfaces, which were trying to talk to old database.
+
-
*Increased NMMR tomcat memory from 256MB to 512 to solve problems adding sections in comprehensive Edit page.
+
-
*"NCDC" records moved to new "NCDC RSE" record set to use FGDC Remote Extensions metadata template.
+
-
*Z39.50 server (Blue Angel Metastar) patched to correctly service XML harvesting queries.
+
-
*The NMMR now runs under Java 1.5 and Oracle 10g, which should provide some small performance, security and robustness improvements.

+
-
URL Validation no longer hangs indefinitely on URLs that don't "complete" correctly.
+
-
 
+
-
A web site can fail to connect or a server can take too long to send a page, or a page can even appear fine in a browser, but the web server never sends a status of "OK" -- in all cases the URL Validator will now simply timeout after 30 seconds, print a warning, and continue.
+
-
 
+
-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
Z39.50 access, fgdcCitation search by "Identifier", component record set search displays "Owner", "Last Modified"
+
-
 
+
-
Z39.50 access is available for the "NGDC" record set. Limited access is available for other record sets -- they are still untested, and will probably require some setup for full access. Please contact ngdc.metadata-support@noaa.gov for details.
+
-
 
+
-
In the fgdcCitation record set, you can now do a search on the "Identifier" field.
+
-
 
+
-
All component record sets ("FGDC Contact", "FGDC Citation", "CI_OnlineResource", "Mission_Information", "Algorithm_Information", "Platform_Information", "Processing_Information", "Instrument_Information") now display the "Owner" column on the Search Results page.
+

===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
Instrument Information component records now added
+
-
 
+
-
For everyone using Remote Sensing Extensions (RSE), there is now a component record set, Instrument Information, that you can link your records to. I've imported all known Instrument Information sections into this record set, and linked them to all records I could find that had those sections individually (except for a few temporary records which people told me they didn't care about).
+
-
 
+
-
Specifically, the affected record sets are:
+
-
 
+
-
*NGDC - records: Draft/3112,1687; Published/3263,2020,3266
+
-
*DART_BPR - records: Draft/21
+
-
*NGDC - MGG - NOS - records: Draft/2,41,61-66,89,149-188
+
-
 
+
-
All other RSE record sets (NCDC RSE, NESDIS, NGDC, -Multibeam, -Marine, NOSA, NSIDC*, OCS, Play Around, OSEI, RSE Default, VRBO RSE) didn't have any current Instrument Information sections, but are now configured so that you can link to the Instrument Information component records.

===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
 
+
-
Search Results page now has two View XML links: "tree" and "plain".
+
-
 
+
-
#"tree" will link to the XML view of the metadata record, which some browsers (at least IE and Firefox) will render as a collapsible, syntax-colored document tree that is useful for navigating the metadata hierarchy, but does not preserve text formatting. This is the same as the previous "XML" link.
+
-
#"plain" will link to the plain text XML view of the record, which will preserve all text formatting, and provide a usable view for other browsers (eg Safari/Mac) that don't handle the "text/xml" content type properly. This view is equivalent to the view if you choose View Source or Save As Text for the tree view.
+
-
 
+
-
Right-clicking either link and choosing Save Link As... will allow saving the record as a valid XML metadata file.
+
-

Fix many broken Help links. Add Release Notes to User's Guide Table of Contents page.

NGDC, NSIDC, NESDIS Products record sets and others using FGDC RSE: Replace Entry ID with Dataset ID in Search, Search Results pages.
+
-
 
+
-
Previously, you could only select to Search on Entry ID (not Dataset ID) and the Entry ID (not Dataset ID) was displayed in a column on the Search Results page. That didn't make sense anymore with metadata managers now only populating Dataset ID. This was the subject of two rt tickets and several casual user requests.
+
-
==1/13/2006 08:13 PM==

-
===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
Changes to the Task and Microinterface for "Get a Dataset Identifier":
+
-
 
+
-
#Option to populate standard Remote Sensing Extensions field, Dataset Identifier
+
-
#Option to populate standard Remote Sensing Extensions field, Resource Description
+
-
#Option to populate the NOAA Supplemental field, Entry ID
+
-
#More helpful wording in the error page if Citation and Contact are not filled out
+
-
 
+
-

-
===<nowiki>[local to NGDC]</nowiki>===
+
-
Schema validation is fixed. Everything's back to normal. I think ;-)
+
-
 
+
-
Improve the Search Results page slightly:
+
-
*Made toolbar, navigation, and headings smarter: they appear only if more than 0 records are found, and only appear at the bottom if more than 5 records are found.
+
-
 
+
-
==12/30/2005 07:30 PM==
+
-
===<nowiki>[global to NMMR]</nowiki>===
+
-
NMMR Search Results page for any record set:
+
-
 
+
-
#A new Delete action that allows you to delete all selected records in a single operation
+
-
#GUI improvements based on usability discussions with many users:
+
-
#*All action buttons have been moved from the bottom of the page to a colored Actions toolbar at top and bottom.
+
-
#*Action buttons now have useful mouseovers to better explain what they do.
+
-
#*Action buttons no longer resubmit the page (forcing a long wait) if you Cancel from a confirmation dialog.
+
-
#*Page navigation links and column headers now appear at both top and bottom of the page.
+
-
#*The checkbox for selecting all records on a page is labeled to help distinguish it from the Select All Records in Results action.
+
-
#*Broken links have been removed (View ESRI, FAQ; Combine With Default)
+
-
