Selecting Metadata Fields
The existing Select Metadata feature (available on the Browse and Cart tabs) allows you to choose which metadata fields are displayed:
- In the Table View
- In the Slideshow View (when you click on a thumbnail)
- On the Detail tab
as well as which fields are saved in downloaded CSV files. Similar functionality is now available directly in the Slideshow View. To get to the slideshow, simply click on any thumbnail in the Gallery View or any table row in the Table View. From this view, you can see a larger preview image, view the values for selected metadata fields, add observations to (or remove observations from) the cart, access a variety of features using the mini-menu in the lower right, and move to the next or previous image in your search results using the arrows in the window or the arrow keys on your keyboard.
To modify the set of metadata fields available in the Slideshow View, simply click on "Edit" at the top:
Once in "Edit" mode, you will be able to drag fields to reorder them, delete fields by clicking on the trashcan icon, or add new fields by clicking on the "+".
When finished modifying the list, click on "Done" at the top.
New Tutorial Videos
The Ring-Moon Systems Node now has a YouTube channel. We currently have two OPUS tutorials that were given at the recent OpenPlanetary virtual conference, one on how to use OPUS in the browser, and one on using the OPUS public API. The videos are also linked from the OPUS Help menu.
Support for Microsoft Edge
Microsoft has released a new version of their Edge browser, based on Chrome, which has the necessary features to support OPUS. As a result, we now consider it a supported browser.
As always, we thank you for using OPUS and appreciate your feedback, comments, or questions.
