DESCRIPTION

r.info.iso creates metadata of raster maps according to ISO 19115.

The module also allows conversion of metadata from native GRASS GIS format to ISO-based format.

NOTES

For dependencies and installation instructions see wiki page.

Naming of metadata files and storage

Default location for exported metadata files is metadata directory in the map's mapset. If the name for output metadata file is not specified by output option than the name is built from map's type and its name. For raster maps, the prefix derived from the current nomenclature is raster, for vector maps vector. File ends with .xml extension.

For example default metadata file name for raster map "elevation" is cell_elevation.xml.

Metadata profile

The basic profile is substituted from intersection between items stored in GRASS native metadata format and INSPIRE profile. The intersect (subset) includes all available GRASS metadata. Metadata which cannot be assigned to ISO based attributes are stored in metadata attribute abstract. The inspire profile fulfills the criteria of INSPIRE profile. Values which are not able to get from native GRASS metadata are filled by text string '$NULL'. This rule applies to both profiles.

EXAMPLES

Export metadata using basic profile (default):
r.info.iso map=elevation

Export metadata using inspire profile:

r.info.iso map=elevation profile=inspire
