Users that are responsible for maintaining repositories will be allowed to upload data.

All data sets that will be uploaded to a repository must be packaged as a zip archive. The upload interface will only allow zip archives to be selected. The upload interface will allow the user to specify certain metadata about the data set being uploaded, including the URL for additional metadata information, such as the IGIC Metadata Repository. Optionally, the user can upload a metadata file to be stored along with the zip archive. All metadata entered on the upload interface form will be stored in the repository in the same location as the uploaded zip archive. The file containing the metadata will be named the same as the name of the zip archive, only with a different extension, such as DAT.
