DM-06: Run a researcher-supplied tool to generate metadata for data objects

Executive Summary: 
A researcher needs to generate metadata for one or more data objects using a tool or application selected by (and possibly provided by) the researcher.
User Importance Summary: 
Researchers and scientists in most fields use metadata to describe their data in order to preserve and communicate their understanding of the data's history, meaning, and key features. Metadata can be vital when searching for data, when reusing data, and when reproducing scientific results.
Target Communities and Sizes: 
XSEDE researchers - 10,000 < N < 100,000
