Geometa is an R package that offers facilities to handle reading and writing of geographic metadata defined with OGC/ISO 19115, 11119 and 19110 geographic information metadata standards, and encoded using the ISO 19139 XML standard. It also includes a facility to check the validity of ISO 19139 XML encoded metadata. The package can be used in integrated (meta)data management flows to generate business metadata compliant with ISO/OGC standards. Metadata generated with geometa can then be published to standard web metadata catalogues by means of related R packages such as ows4R (R interface to OGC Web-Services) or geonapi (R Interface to GeoNetwork API).
