Welcome to the Medard project website

Medard Metadata Editor is an application designed to create and manage spatial metadata. Editor can create and store metadata in accordance with the ISO 19100 series and the requirements of EU INSPIRE Directive (Implementing Rules v 1.0).


The application was originally created by the Institute of Spatial and Cadastral Systems SA and is available under the AGPL license


The original Medard application version created by ISPIK SA has been modified within the project, regarding extension of data processing system of the Polish Hydrogeological Survey (PHS), funded by the National Fund for Environmental Protection and Water Management. The need to modify the metadata editing application is a result of the INSPIRE Directive and current legislation requirements. Project's IT contractor was the ComArch company. Polish Geological Institute - National Research Institute (PGI-NRI) carries out NHS tasks under the Act of Water Law. The current version of the metadata editor MEDARD is 6.0.0.
