Just found out that QGis 3.x has a metadata editor. That is great! Is there a tool to convert the metadata saved by QGIS (.qmd file) to a ISO-xml standard metadata file?

Why am I asking this: I though of using QGis to create the xml metadata file that we will use to populate a Metadata Catalog

  • I agree that as the metadata gathered appears to conform to the INSPIRE profile ISO 19139 it would be helpful to be able to export in that schema. Can't work out if it is already in hand though ~ github.com/qgis/QGIS-Enhancement-Proposals/issues/91 – nmtoken Jul 10 '18 at 11:31
  • I read a .qmd file using vi and it is XML. I suspect an easy translation to ISO metadata can be done using xslt. But a previous analysis beween GIS and ISO Metadata schemas have to be done in order to correctly perform such task. – Gabriel Asato Jun 12 at 18:06
