  • Complexity set to Very Hard

There are problems in the validity of the XML description when GMLCOV metadata is added as XML content itself.

To avoid breaking the XML description, the XML predefined entities in ps_metadata should be encoded (&name;) and the whole element should have bound prefixes (add necessary xmlns:prefix=uri in the root element).

Maybe further recommendation there: run a DescribeCoverage request after the metadata has been added in the database.

Wiki instructions updated for the new petascopedb schema: see Petascope User Guide.
