This paper shares our experience in developing an application software for the metadata of the German Microcensus on the variable level. First, we develop an editor acted in compliance with DDI 3.0 standard as the documentation software which improves and simpli es the process of the data documentation. Second, we develop a web information system in order to present various looks at the metadata to the end users. The scope of our work depicts the development cycle of an application software based on DDI 3.0 standard. More technical details are also presented in this paper.
