Import MGCP Metadata (Topographic Production)


Imports Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) metadata into an MGCP database to perform maintenance on cells and subregions.


  • The metadata can only be imported into an MGCP database that already contains the MGCP_Metadata feature dataset.

  • The input XML files must match the ISO 19139 specification and be compliant with TRD 2, TRD 3, and TRD 4.

  • Data is imported into the following feature classes using this tool:

    • The Cell feature class contains metadata about individual 1x1-decimal degree extents with which the data is associated.
    • The Subregion feature class contains metadata about the specific area within the cell where the data meets requirements for a specific purpose.
    • The Source feature class supplies information about the source used in the feature extraction.
