MNDeployment #7082: USGS Science Data Catalog (SDC)
USGS SDC metadata issues with CSDGM
As of 5/6/15, only about 1000 objects of SDC's over 6000 objects have synchronized in test due to metadata schema validation errors. There are ESRI-related tags in this metadata, but their usage is not consistent such that we could filter them out.
USGS has a lot of people using ESRI tools to generate FGDC metadata; the ESRI tags then included won't pass FGDC schema validation
Example with ESRI tags: http://data.usgs.gov/metadata/National_Wetlands_Research_Center/5285161ae4b063f258e61fa7.xml (Search for 'ESRI' in the XML)
Example with no ESRI tags: http://data.usgs.gov/metadata/Core_Science_Analytics_and_Synthesis/527d0a83e4b0850ea0518326.xml
We need a solution that will allow all of SDC's metadata records to pass validation.

Maybe something here would be of use: http://www.ncddc.noaa.gov/metadata-standards/metadata-xml/
