Metadata Record -- Extent Section
The Extent section of the Edit Window is used to define geographic, temporal, and vertical extents for the main resource. The Geographic Extent sets spatial boundaries which encompass data collection and/or areas of interest for the main resource. The boundaries can be defined as a bounding box, points, lines, or complex polygons. Temporal Extent set time periods or specific instants for which the main resource is relevant. Vertical Extents define the vertical span of the main resource as altitude, elevation, or depth.
Note only geographic extents are implemented in this release of mdEditor. Temporal and vertical extents are coming soon.
When one or more Extents have been defined the Extent window will look similar to the image below.
The Extent Edit Window opens with one empty Geographic Extent initiated. Multiple Geographic Extents are permitted in mdJSON, however only one Geographic Extents is supported by mdEditor at this time. To include multiple Geographic Extents in the Extent you will need to generate the mdJSON manually.
