ArcGIS Metadata Toolkit 10.5.x

Summary

This version of the ArcGIS Metadata Toolkit provides tools and documentation that let you create and share custom metadata styles that use the validation capabilities provided in the ArcGIS metadata editor with the ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcGlobe ArcGIS for Desktop 10.5.x applications.

Description

This version of the ArcGIS Metadata Toolkit documents how to create and share custom metadata styles based on the ArcGIS metadata editor provided with ArcGIS for Desktop 10.5.x in the ArcMap, ArcCatalog, and ArcGlobe applications. Customizations that change how you view and export metadata, validate metadata using an XML schema, and reduce the number of pages available in the ArcGIS metadata editor require no programming.

The Toolkit also provides the complete source code for the metadata editor’s pages, based on the 10.5 release of ArcGIS for Desktop, if you want to change how they work. The documentation walks you through the process of creating a custom page and adding it to the ArcGIS metadata editor, modifying the contents of a dropdown list, and changing the validation rules associated with pages in the ArcGIS metadata editor. Customizations created with this version of the Toolkit will not work with ArcGIS Pro.
