Frequently asked question

Why are updates to metadata not reflected in the style sheet?

Last Published: April 25, 2020


Only information that is compliant with the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) standard appears in the style sheet. If the information updated is not included in the FGDC standard, it does not display in the style sheet. Viewing the metadata outside of the style sheet, in editor mode, displays all updates regardless of compliance with the FGDC standard.
