Frequently asked question

Is the biological data profile for FGDC metadata supported?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


ArcGIS does not provide an editor that allows information to be provided following the Biological Data Profile of the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata.

A developer can create a custom metadata editor that lets users provide information following this profile. They should also modify the metadata stylesheets provided with ArcGIS to display the biological information.
