Hi all,

Japanese government is asking me about efficient way to add metadata
to enormous data sets on the government open data portal site.   I
would appreciate it if you could cooperate my question.

1. How do government officials add metadata to each data sets on the
government data portal site like "data.gov" ?

2. Do the government have any tools ( crawler ...etc) to add metadata?
or have any plans to develop them?

3. Who knows this issue?  What department is in charge of this?

4. Do you have any related information or any outlook about this issue?

Thank you.

Masa Shoji
