Provide access to the metadata from the python API

Julien Osman requested to merge 2226-wrap-image-metadata-in-swig into develop


Provides a wrapping of the ImageMetadata object through the Python API, using SWIG.


Fix #2226 (closed)

Implementation Details

Classes and files
  • Creation of an ImageMetadata.i file to describe the new API.
  • Add a getter/setter to access metadata from the application object
  • Update the Cookbook with this new API.

Additional notes

This is a work in progress. Before merging, we still need to:

  • Wrap the geom metadata
  • Wrap the new time metadata (see !868 (merged))
  • Modify the Import/ExportImage of the current API so it provides the ImageMetadata
  • Update the documentation
  • Set up some tests
