Abstract

The storage and management of metadata is an essential task in systems that deal with spatial data. However, to accomplish this task it is necessary to count with a set of tools that operate in integrated mode. This paper describes the development of edpMGB, a metadata editor for the MGB profile. The editor is open-source and is being released in the cloud via Web following the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, so it can be accessed from any site on the Internet, requiring only a Web browser. The editor was developed on the scope of the research and development project (R&D) Geoportal Cemig SDI-based corporate GIS (Geoportal Cemig - SIG corporativo baseado em IDE), whose objective is the implementation of a corporate SDI for the Minas Gerais Power Company (Companhia Energética de Minas Gerais - Cemig). Furthermore, this work proposes the use of a hyperbolic tree to aid indexing metadata, facilitating its recovery. After indexing, the user can navigate through the tree nodes and perform searches over the metadata related to the search words.
