Illustrating with an overview¶
To help the user identify a metadata record of interest, you can create a graphic overview (or thumbnail) in the form of an image and attach it to the metadata record. For example, if your metadata record describes some geographic dataset then the graphic overview could be an image of the map with legend produced by an OGC Web Map Service.
You can associate one or more thumbnails with a record.
Thumbnails are displayed in search results and metadata view:
From the Associated resources panel, click on the Add a thumbnail button to open the Add an overview to the current metadata wizard. Thumbnails can be added using 3 approaches:
Uploading a thumbnail¶
Only 2 thumbnails can be attached to a record and uploaded to the catalog. Optionnaly a small thumbnail can be created automatically when uploading a large image.
The following image formats are supported:
Choose a file on your computer or drag&drop a file on the popup. Click Add a thumbnail to trigger the upload.
