Package org.geotoolkit.metadata.iso.content Description

Content information implementation. An explanation for this package is provided in the OpenGIS® javadoc. The remaining discussion on this page is specific to the Geotk implementation.


Overview
For a global overview of metadata in Geotk, see the Metadata page on the project web site.


Bands in gridded data
ISO 19115 defines a Band interface which expresses the range of wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. For the needs of Image I/O, an additional interface has been defined with a subset of the Band API and the restriction to electromagnetic spectrum removed. This interface is defined in the geotk-coverageio module and is named SampleDimension. Both Band and SampleDimension interfaces extend the same parent, RangeDimension.


Parameterized types
In GeoAPI interfaces, most collections are typed with wildcards, for example Collection<? extends Citation>. The Geotk implementation removes the wildcards and declares Collection<Citation> instead. This allows collections to be live. Consequently it is possible to add new elements directly in an existing collection using code like getCitations().add(myCitation) instead than setting the collection as a whole with setCitations(myCitations).
