GIS ISO Standards Training

From a GIS student:  There is a good ISO training site on the GIS Lounge offering Free GIS ISO 191 series webinars through NOAA.  Some of the plusses are: All materials offered are public domain for educational purposes (just need to register the number of attendees with NOAA for accurate counts). The webinar includes a workbook containing ISO standards for BIO_metadata, MD_Metadata and MI_metadata, a feature catalog and .uml’s (a plus, as the purchasing each student alone is pricey).  The NOAA Webinar hosts are very responsive to ALL questions…installing the webinar link (for the computer challenged).
