geeup's getmeta command is a powerful tool designed to generate generalized metadata for raster images using information parsed from gdalinfo and metadata properties. With this feature, you can quickly obtain essential details about your raster images, such as the image name, dimensions (x and y), and the number of bands. This metadata can be invaluable for organizing and managing your geospatial data effectively.

Key Features

  • Metadata Generation: Automatically generate metadata for raster images in your dataset, providing crucial information about each file.

  • Effortless Setup: geeup's getmeta command is easy to use, requiring just a few simple arguments to start generating metadata.

  • Comprehensive Information: Obtain image name, x and y dimensions, and the number of bands, giving you a clear overview of your raster assets.

  • CSV Export: Export the generated metadata to a CSV file, making it accessible for further analysis or integration into your geospatial workflows.


usage: geeup getmeta [-h] --input INPUT --metadata METADATA

optional arguments:
  -h, --help             show this help message and exit

Required named arguments:
  --input INPUT          Path to the input directory with all raster files
