Metadata support

Raster

Vector

Comments on a vector map can be added manually by editing $MAPSET/vector/$MAPNAME/hist.

Metadata management ideas for future versions of GRASS

Unified XML-based approach for raster/vector/imagery

  • store relevant metadata in an XML-based format, along with creation/modification history
  • a new directory '$maspset/metadata/' could house this information
  • would probably require major re-write of the raster/vector history mechanism
  • generic reading/writing of XML data (don't we already have this functionality somewhere...)
