The “Metamaker” is a tool designed to create Dublin Core and AgMES compliant metadata. The tool allows the user to create metadata from scratch using a simple web form and save it in different formats (HTML, XHTML, XML, RDF or AGRIS AP). It also offers to extract metadata from existing web pages or local html files. The user can then edit this metadata in the web form and, if it is intended for a website, cut and paste the generated HTML or XHTML metadata in thesection of the HTM(L) file. Help for each element can be accessed by clicking the element name. Frequently used controlled vocabularies (AGROVOC and AGRIS categories) are incorporated into the tool to allow for standardized description of the subject.
