The GeoMetadata node belongs to the Geospatial component and its container field is children. It is available since X3D version 3.0 or later.

Fields

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.

Hints

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.

Warning

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.

Hints

Example <GeoMetadata summary=' "title" "San Francisco, California USA" '/>. There should always be an even (or zero) number of strings to match key-value pairs.
