Box 25046, Mailstop 302, Denver, CO 80225. You may also find information about this ICR at www.reginfo.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) stakeholders move forward with the implementation of the International Organization for Standardization’s (ISO) 191xx series of geospatial metadata standards, there is increasing demand for information about applications/editors that can be used to create ISO compliant metadata records. The USGS, through the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Office of the Secretariat (www.fgdc.gov), proposes development of an online registration system for developers of ISO Geospatial Metadata Editors to voluntarily describe their metadata tools. Developers will be asked to include information such as features of the editor, its functionality, supported standards, and point of contact information through a login-based, online form. The FGDC Metadata Working Group (MWG) (www.fgdc.gov/ participation/workinggroupssubcommittees/mwg), whose membership represents Federal, State, Local and Tribal governments and the Private Sector, has requested the development of the registry as a useful tool to learn about available ISO Geospatial Metadata Editors. Since the information about the editors may be of interest or utility to others implementing ISO geospatial metadata standards, the FGDC will make the information collected available on the Web in the form of a simple registry type database. FGDC MWG members as well as non FGDC MWG members including geospatial metadata implementers from private sector, academia, all forms of government, and PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 67443 the general public, will have read-only access to the editor information published in the registry. II. Data OMB Control Number: 1028—NEW. Title: ISO Geospatial Metadata Editors Registry. Type of Request: Approval of a new information collection. Respondent Obligation: None. Participation is voluntary. Frequency of Collection: Annually. Description of Respondents: Federal, State, Local and Tribal governments, Private Sector, and others involved in the development of ISO geospatial metadata. Estimated Total Number of Annual Responses: Approximately 10. Estimated Time per Response: We estimate that it will take 1 hour per person to document a single editor for inclusion in the Registry. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 10 hours in year one and less than 5 in each subsequent year. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: There are no ‘‘non-hour cost’’ burdens associated with this collection of information. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor and you are not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    As National Spatial Data Infrastructure (NSDI) stakeholders move 
forward with the implementation of the International Organization for 
Standardization's (ISO) 191xx series of geospatial metadata standards, 
there is increasing demand for information about applications/editors 
that can be used to create ISO compliant metadata records. The USGS, 
through the Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) Office of the 
Secretariat (www.fgdc.gov), proposes development of an online 
registration system for developers of ISO Geospatial Metadata Editors 
to voluntarily describe their metadata tools. Developers will be asked 
to include information such as features of the editor, its 
functionality, supported standards, and point of contact information 
through a login-based, online form. The FGDC Metadata Working Group 
(MWG) (www.fgdc.gov/participation/working-groupssubcommittees/mwg), 
whose membership represents Federal, State, Local and Tribal 
governments and the Private Sector, has requested the development of 
the registry as a useful tool to learn about available ISO Geospatial 
Metadata Editors. Since the information about the editors may be of 
interest or utility to others implementing ISO geospatial metadata 
standards, the FGDC will make the information collected available on 
the Web in the form of a simple registry type database. FGDC MWG 
members as well as non FGDC MWG members including geospatial metadata 
implementers from private sector, academia, all forms of government, 
and the general public, will have read-only access to the editor 
information published in the registry.
