The C2Metadata Project is producing new tools that will work with common statistical packages (eg R and SPSS) to automate the capture of metadata describing variable transformations. Software-independent data transformation descriptions will be added to metadata in two internationally accepted standards: DDI and Ecological Markup Language (EML). These tools will create efficiencies and reduce the costs of data collection, preparation, and re-use. Of special interest to social sciences with its strong metadata standards and heavy reliance on statistical analysis software.
