Constructor for GeoMetadata

Name Type Argument Default Description
ctx Object <optional>
null context object, containing initial settings like namespace


These are the X3D / X3DOM fields of this node. Values should usually be received / set as strings via DOM functions (i.e., using setAttribute("myFieldName", "myFieldValue") and getAttribute("myFieldName")).
Name Type Default Value Range Inheritance Standard Description
data MFNode X3DInfoNode The data field is used to list all of the other nodes in a scene by DEF name that reference the data described in the GeoMetadata node. The nodes in the data field are not rendered, so DEF/USE can be used in order to first describe them and then to use them in the scene graph.
metadata SFNode X3DMetadataObject X3DInfoNode Field to add metadata information
summary MFString [] The summary string array contains a set of keyword/value pairs, with each keyword and its subsequent value contained in a separate string; i.e., there should always be an even (or zero) number of strings.
url MFString [] The url field is used to specify a hypertext link to an external, complete metadata description. Multiple URL strings can be specified in order to provide alternative locations for the same metadata information. The summary field may be used to specify the format of the metadata in the case where this cannot be deduced easily.
