Export MGCP Metadata (Topographic Production)


Exports Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) metadata datasets (Cell, Subregion, and Source feature classes) to an XML file.


  • One XML file is created for each Cell feature that is selected. If none are selected, one XML file is created for each feature in the Cell feature class.

  • The Cell feature class must be named Cell.

  • The XML schema matches the ISO 19139 specification and is compliant with TRD 2, TRD 3, and TRD 4.

  • The metadata file contains information from the MGCP_Metadata datasets that are part of an MGCP database.

  • The following feature classes are exported to an XML file using this tool:

    • The Cell feature class contains metadata about individual 1x1-decimal degree extents with which the data is associated.
    • The Subregion feature class contains metadata about the specific area within the cell where the data meets requirements for a specific purpose.
    • The Source feature class supplies information about the source used in the feature extraction.

ExportMetadata example (stand-alone script)

In this example, the Metadata feature dataset is exported from the MGCP_TRD2 geodatabase to an XML file in the Metadata directory.

# Name: ExportMGCPMetadata_sample.py
# Description: Export MGCP metadata from a geodatabase to an MGCP metadata XML file

# Import System Modules
import arcpy

# Check Out Extensions

# Setting Local Variables
cell_features = r'C:\Testing\ExportMGCPMetadata\MGCP_TRD_4_3.gdb\MGCP_Metadata\Cell'
export_location = r'C:\Testing\ExportMGCPMetadata'

# Export MGCP metadata XML file
arcpy.topographic.ExportMetadata(cell_features, export_location)

# Check In Extensions
