I want to get some statistics about my geonetwork catalog. Things I would like to know are
- total dataset count
- dataset count for different format types (e.g. CSV, WMS, etc.)
- dataset count that is valid for a specific geographic region
The best thing I could think of so far, is to query the catalog with the GetRecords operation, optionally filtered to restrict feature count.
Then it would be neccessary to parse the response and count the occurrence of e.g. individual identifiers.
This would be possible but doesn't sound too nice, as I assume there should be some better solution already available for this, because it sounds like a must have for a geodata catalogue.
Does anyone know of a better solution to this, by means of an OGC request to csw or a geonetwork specific solution?
Just found, there is a built-in solution to this in the catalog UI as described here. Thats actually what I need, but I would like to query it from the API to show it in tabular format.
