What this module does

The goal of Metadata Mapping is to solve many of the problems around metadata management by providing an easy & explicit way for metadata within a system (encounter types, location, etc.) to be mapped to external vocubularies.

The current release includes a small set of features. The current development effort is documented at Metadata Mapping (Design Page).

Documentation / How-To

REST api is not available yet (see MAP-8 - Getting issue details... STATUS ) so the only option is to use Java APIs directly from you modules.
