Production of metadata

The BED collective offers a production of simplified metadata sheet with the Geoflow and Geometa tool under R.

The Geometa package generates Inspire-compliant ISO19139 XML metadata from various sources(CSV, GSheets, BDD).

The Geoflow package allows an orchestration of Geometa and complementary libraries (geonapi, geosapi, ows4r, zen4r, ldap4r…) to generate and publish both metadata and their associated data via standardized streams (CSW, WMS, WFS).
