In the menu “Maps and Products”, the function “Our Products” leads to the geoportal's product catalog:
This catalog opens on a static page, offering the choice between the different geoproduct categories and the multi-criteria search engine.

The catalog contains detailed information about the different geoproducts that are available in the geoportal. They are produced by the different providers who cooperate with the geoportal. The information sets are called metadata.
The metadata sets are accessed via the list of the geoproducts, by clicking on the product’s name. They are opened in a separate window.
The contents of the metadata sets respect the ISO 19115 norm. A selection of fields, which have to be filled in by the providers for each product, has been made among those proposed by the norm. This means that in the scope of the geoportal, for the first time in Luxembourg, a “luxembourgish metadata profile” has been established. This profile can later be used to exchange metadata with national and international instances.
Like all the contents of the geoportal, the metadata sets are normally available in 4 languages. The user chooses the language by clicking on the flag-buttons.
With the button “XML” , the user can get the contents of the metadata set in XML format (ISO 19139).
With the button “PDF” , the user can render contents of the metadata set in a PDF file.
