Metacat is a repository for data and metadata (documentation about data) that helps 
19
scientists find, understand and effectively use data sets they manage or that 
20
have been created by others. Thousands of data sets are currently documented in 
21
a standardized way and stored in Metacat systems, providing the scientific 
22
community with a broad range of science data that--because the data are well and 
23
consistently described--can be easily searched, compared, merged, or used 
24
in other ways.
