Metadata can sometimes be an afterthought in the data publishing process and become a cumbersome task for technology teams when deferred until the end of a project. It is however the most important step for data publishers who aspire to high data discovery and appropriate usage of the data by all consumers. During a mass data migration event, an opportunity presented itself to the city of Mesa to make it a trivial task to review and improve their metadata. Join us in Phoenix to learn more about how the city of Mesa used FME + an excel workbook + Socrata metadata API endpoint to update metadata in bulk and provide validation reports on the completeness and accuracy of their metadata across their data portal.
