For many years, there was not a straightforward way to view the Global Change Master Directory (GCMD) keywords, see their hierarchical structure, show keyword relationships, and access definitions other than using the Keyword Management System (KMS) API, which was designed for machine-to-machine access. The new web-based keyword viewer allows metadata curators and ontologists to search for and navigate the GCMD keywords in a user-friendly and human-readable tree structure.
