Dear Carlos,


I am working in MetaSolutions, the company that have developed the DCAT Editor application.

I think your idea of using the editor could make sence.


If you want to have a dialog arround what we do and how we have developed the application further to EntryScape Catalog, please take contact for a dialog.


You find more information and how to take contact on

Dear Sirs,
Me and my colleagues are working on a project in which will be necessary to create metadata for document type resources and do not have spatial information associated, such as scientific articles, books, etc.
I wornder if the DCAT Editor application is suitable for this purpose and if this application can be customized by removing some fields and introducing others that are vital in our opinion?
We would appreciate it if you could send us more detailed information about this important subject.
Respectfully yours,
Carlos Sérgio Ferreira
