|Subject||[greenstone-users] generating the metadata.xml file|
First of all thanks for a great product! Greenstone has made production of a demo image collection an absolute breeze.
Question 1: Where can I post the documentation that I've created during the build of a image collection (which might be useful for someone else)? Can I send it to someone or just post it in the user or dev forum?
I was able to copy more images into the import directory and then change the metadata.xml file to include some more data. In other words I did not have to use the GLI. I've done this for only about 15 images. Well, this feels a bit redundant since I actually have a tab delimitted text file with all the metadata for the 254 images that should be in the collection.
My question is ?? Is there a way that I can incorporate/extract this tab delimmited text file into the collection environment so that the metadata.xml file is auto generated/created? (By means of a script or by changing the build.pl script).
This will obviously be much less time consuming than to enter it manually via GLI or use a editor to change the metadata.xml.
