In space physics, there is a very large effort to create standard metadata for data products [5]. The most important reason for this is to enable search; the number of data products is increasing, and with the advent of small satellites [6][7], we will likely double the number of available data products in a very short amount of time.  In our proposal for the ViRBO project, we laid out a plan to build on an existing code base that had metadata search, discovery, access, version control, and edit functions. The developers of this code base are from GC RAS and NGDC, and as part of the ViRBO project, we have significantly extended its capabilities.
