I'm using QGIS, but not for a long time. I'm editing and saving shapes and geotiffs. And I'm happy how this works. I'm wondering if there's a way to import and export metadata ISO 19115, while saving and loading files. In a way that it is stored, together with the shapes or tiffs? I hate to loose the connection between data and metadata. Can this be done?
