[The LBA Metadata Editor is no longer active]

What is meant by "Register/Update Metadata"?
Use the LBA Metadata Editor (LME) to create metadata files describing your data; these metadata files will then be searchable by Beija-flor, the LBA Search Engine.

At what point should I register my metadata?
Registration (the creation of a metadata file) may take place before, during or shortly after data collection and should be updated as your data matures.

Do I need a user account to register metadata?
The LBA Metadata Editor can be accessed by anyone as a guest, but to create a file that can be searched by Beija-flor, you must have a user account and password.

When I register my metadata, am I automatically making my data accessible? 
No. Unless you also put your data on-line and place the data access URL in your metadata, Beija-flor users will only have access to your metadata, not your data.

What if I am still processing my data after one year? 
It is recognized that some types of data require longer processing times than others. However, all data must be submitted to CPTEC for archive at one year, regardless of data maturity status. We recommend that you note in your metadata when you expect the data to be released.

My data are proprietary or copyrighted. Do I have to make this data public? 
Contact the LBA DIS manager for waiver approval. All data, however, must have registered metadata regardless of accessibility restrictions.
