Great Basin Metadata Server

The NBII Metadata Clearinghouse

The Great Basin Metadata Server includes information about spatial and biological data that overlay the extent of the Great Basin and Columbia Plateau. Metadata servers allow data users to search, retrieve, and evaluate data sets by providing standardized descriptions of geospatial and biological data. These descriptions convey such things as content, quality, lineage, contact, and other characteristics.

This metadata server is a Node of the NBII Metadata Clearinghouse. Users can query just the Great Basin Metadata Server or they can select additional Nodes to query.
