IOOS Catalog Architecture
More information on the system architecture for the IOOS Catalog can be found here.
The Harvest Registry is the entry point into the Catalog. IOOS data providers can use the Registry to submit ISO 19115-compliant metadata describing their datasets and associated services using the Registry. The IOOS Catalog requires Web Accessible Folders containing ISO 19115 metadata be published and accessible for the Registry to harvest. More information found here.
More info on the IOOS Catalog components will be published here as the system evolves.
