This report is aimed to present the metadata information infrastructure project funded by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communication, Japan. This project is planned to build a metadata schema registry as an infrastructure to help sharing of metadata schemas on the Internet and promote reuse of metadata schemas and metadata interoperability. The registry is designed based on the Singapore Framework.
