Tagging with categories

A catalog can define a set of categories that can be used to classify metadata records for easy searching or managment purposes (see Managing categories). Categories will not be added to the metadata records itself and as such may not be exported when the record is harvested (eg. when using CSW protocol). If the category needs to be propagated with the metadata, use other harvesting protocols (eg. GeoNetwork) or use keywords (see Tagging with keywords).

2 ways available to assign categories to a metadata record:

  • Search records, select one or more record and choose the Update categories on the selection. From here you can either replace categories or add new ones.

  • Search the metadata record, open the editor and click on the Categories button. A drop down menu will appear from which you can assign one or more categories using checkboxes
