Classification and editing of TIFF and LIS file metadata
Authorised users have the ability to amend certain metadata pertaining to files that their company has responsibility to report to the NSTA via the NDR. In our last release, we restricted the editing of some files types that are not currently permitted to be loaded to the NDR, including TIFF for digital images of reports and well logs, and LIS for well log data.
While neither of these formats can be loaded today, we recognise that a significant proportion of the legacy data collection has been reported in these formats – particularly in TIFF format – and that at the time they were loaded, this was considered to be an appropriate format.
Restricting the editability of these files meant that Data Managers in the reporting organisations have been unable to change the Classification Tags and other metadata (file description, comments).
With this latest change, authorised users can now resume edits to metadata for TIFF and LIS files where classification and/or descriptions can be improved.
