Meatdata

Agustin Lobo-2
Some questions on Metadata:

1. Is it posible to edit the metadata displayed in
Properties/Metadata ?
For example, after opening a multiple geotif file,
I have in the metadata:

Band
1 : Gray
Band No
1
No Stats
No stats collected yet
Band
2 : Undefined
Band No
2
No Stats
No stats collected yet

and so on for 6 bands.

I wish to edit and set the correct values.

2. Can the metadata information be exported so that it can be consulted
and edited using a metadata editor? We want to add our
layers to a catalogue and we would save a lot of time
if the information displayed by QGis could be exported to a file.

3. Could we have in the future a tool to search (in the
disk or in a web server) all available
layers for a given geographic region, see some brief info
on each layer, perhaps a quicklook and then be able to select
and add to the QGis display?

Thanks!

Agus

Editing the metadata is not currently possible.

Possibly this could be done with a little python I guess. Currently
there is no export option though this would not be hard to add.

I have a data cataloguing plugin in the works that scans your disk for
GIS files, builds a catalog, lets you categorise files and then lets
you add files to the project. It will be a month or so before its
ready to use and probably wont do everything you want in its first
version. I'll let you know when its ready for testing.
