How do you take metadata information from a url like this and create an xml file that ArcCatalog's "import xml" metadata tool will accept? I have tried a few variations on pasting the url information into a text editor and saving as xml but haven't found the right method. I am using ArcGIS 10.
Hmmm... they've transformed the XML to formatted HTML. Not sure if there is an easy way to reverse that. Not sure why, but I downloaded the SURN11.zip file and it doesn't have any metadata xml there. ftp://portaldata:firstname.lastname@example.org/PackagedData/ISC/SURN.zip Maybe just contact them. I'm sure they have it given the HTML that they are showing.
Unless I'm wrong ; ) anyone?
