Connecting Metadata to SSA Map Layers

    Hello all,

    Has anyone found a way to connect metadata information to the SSA Map Layers?
    In Exponare it was easy to do by defining a hyperlink to an xml in a virtual directory as shown below:
    Since easy access to accurate metadata is essential for a modern GIS I consider this quite important.

    Cheers,​

    Hi David,

    As far as I know Spectrum Spatial doesn't have anywhere to record a metadata link against a NamedTable, ideally when a link is entered Spectrum Spatial would add a metadata link under the layer overflow menu link this:

    Metadata Link
    One possibility is to add this yourself using Extensibility but you will need to either hard code the metadata links or build a lookup table until there is somewhere to record this information directly on a NamedTable.
