In GeoNetwork opensource ( http://geonetwork-opensource.org ) we've
been using ISO19115 for a long time now. We are now finalizing a
release of the software that has among other things, support for the
Metadata: ISO19115 validated against ISO19139 implementation standard.
Catalog: OGC CAT 1.0 & Z39.50
OGC CSW 2.0.1 based on the ISO profile
GeoNetwork opensource is an incubator project of OSGEO and can be
found at http://www.osgeo.org/geonetwork
We find it useful and have been using it to document large numbers of
spatial datasets. For example at http://www.fao.org/geonetwork (where
I work), http://vam.wfp.org/vamsie , http://geonetwork.unocha.org/
mapsondemand and http://csi.cgiar.org/geonetwork to name a few. All
these organizations share their metadata collections among catalogs.
