Create/Update IDN Metadata


Help Earth science researchers find your data by creating a dataset description in the DIF format using the docBUILDER tool. The CEOS International Directory Network (IDN) assists researchers with free, online access to information on scientific datasets (metadata) in Earth sciences — and you can help them find the data they need by using docBUILDER.

How to Access Tool

The docBUILDER tool allows metadata authors to create or modify dataset descriptions (DIFs), which are submitted to the IDN. Go to the Earthdata Login page for a new account or password resets, and then click on docBUILDER to get started.
