Formal metadata: information and software
Identification_Information: Citation: Citation_Information: Title: Put the title hereFor a published data set, this should be the title of the publication. Not all data are formally published, however, and publication titles sometimes omit pertinent information. Since the title is what people will see first in a search of the Clearinghouse, you'll want to make sure it is both informative and concise. If you're creating a title, try to include the theme, geographic extent, and time period of the data, if applicable. If you have a formal title, consider appending additional information to it, set off by a colon.
