As defined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS), metadata consist of information that characterizes data. Metadata are used to provide documentation for data products. In essence, metadata answer who, what, when, where, why, and how about every facet of the data that are being documented. Washington County has a goal of creating metadata for each major county maintained dataset that meets the Federal Geographic Data Committee's (FGDC) Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata. For additional information about metadata see the USGS metadata FAQ
