Tools for Reading and Writing ISO/OGC Geographic Metadata

geometa provides facilities to manipulate geographic metadata defined with OGC/ISO 19115 and 19139 (XML) standards, including an API to create in R representations of geographic metadata, as defined in the above standards, and write it to XML, or even to read an XML metadata into R.

Please check the online documentation for more details!

Metadata standards coverage status

Current Focus: ISO 19115-1:2003 Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 1: Fundamentals ISO 19119:2005 Geographic information -- Service MEtadata ISO 19110:2005 Geographic Information -- Methodology for Feature Cataloguing ISO 19136:2007 Geographic information -- Geography Markup Language (GML), partial support (classes needed for ISO 19115) * ISO 19139:2007 XML with Encoding, Decoding and Validation support

Notes: on encoding/decoding: Some specific ISO classes may be still missing, and will be added iteratively, according to needs. This applies particularly to GML classes (ISO 19136) that may be needed in some ISO 19115 and 19110 classes on validation: validation is perfomed using XML schema validation based on ISO/OGC schemas

Not yet supported: ISO 19115-1:2014 - Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 1: Fundamentals ISO 19115-2:2009 - Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 2: Extensions for imagery and gridded data * ISO/TS 19115-3:2016 - Geographic information -- Metadata -- Part 3: XML schema implementation for fundamental concepts
