Table of contents


This module is dedicated to modify and update the metadata of a space time dataset.

The title, description and the semantic type can be modified.

The flag -u allows updating the STDS metadata from registered map layers. This is useful in case the map layers have been modified without using temporal commands.

The flag -m will update the metadata from registered maps, but also checks if the registered map layers have been removed from the spatial database. It deletes missing map layers from the space time dataset register table and the temporal database.


Modification of title and description of space time raster dataset A. type=strds input=tempmean_monthly title="Monthly temperature for North Carolina" \
          description="Dataset with monthly temperature for North Carolina"

Update the metadata of space time raster dataset A and check for removed map layers. -m type=strds input=tempmean_monthly
