The GCMD staff announced the release of GCMD/IDN Version 188.8.131.52 on June 12, 2012. This release represents a significant change in the functionality of the GCMD through the use of the new Keyword Management System (KMS). The KMS introduces a completely new paradigm for the use and management of the GCMD’s keywords. In addition, the new Metadata Web Service (MWS) offers a RESTful web service that provides “dynamic query access” to the GCMD metadata collection. The “Next Generation” web search portal leverages the KMS by offering a sophisticated “tree refinement” option. Other features, which are built on top of KMS and MWS, include the free-text search, science keyword search, and the docBUILDER metadata authoring tools that are currently utilized by organizations throughout the world. We will present a live demonstration of the KMS and MWS services as well as the “Next Generation” web search portal.
