DDI (Data Documentation Initiative) is the standard format for documenting data in the social sciences (especially for survey and interview data). Yet, there do not seem to be a lot of tools for creating DDI XML from a dataset. Dataverse is one implementation, but it requires uploading a dataset to that site in order to access the DDI. What alternatives are available for creating DDI metadata documents from a dataset?
