GeoMetadata includes a generic subset of metadata about the geographic data.
The GeoMetadata node belongs to the Geospatial component and its container field is children. It is available since X3D version 3.0 or later.
SFNode [in, out] metadata NULL [X3DMetadataObject]
Metadata are not part of the X3D world and not interpreted by the X3D browser, but they can be accessed via the ECMAScript interface.
MFString [in, out] url [ ] [URI]
Hypertext link to an external, complete metadata description.
MFString arrays can have multiple values, so separate each individual string by quote marks "http://www.web3d.org" "http://www.web3d.org/about" "etc." XML encoding for quotation mark " is " (which is called a character entity). Can replace embedded blank(s) in url queries with %20 for each blank character.
Strictly match directory and filename capitalization for http links! This is important for portability. Some operating systems are forgiving of capitalization mismatches, but http/https and other operating systems are not.
MFString [in, out] summary [ ]
The summary string array contains a set of keyword/value pairs, with each keyword and its subsequent value contained in separate strings.
Example <GeoMetadata summary=' "title" "San Francisco, California USA" '/>. There should always be an even (or zero) number of strings to match key-value pairs.
MFNode [in, out] data [ ]
DEF list of all nodes that implement this data. If no specific geospatial nodes are identified, then this GeoMetadata node pertains to entire scene.
