Screenshot of METAMOD Search Interface

METAMOD 2.x is a portal solution providing Discovery, Access and Retrieve functionality for scientific datasets along with tools for metadata handling etc. It allows for automatic and manual DAR Metadata creation. The Metadata can be converted to different formats and exposed using different search-interfaces, i.e. ISO23950 and OAI-PMH. METAMOD 2.x has been designed to be easily integrable with OpENDAP or ftp data-servers, i.e. THREDDS and allows data-upload through FTP and HTTP interfaces.
