Selon Ivan <ivan.lucena at pmldnet.com>:
There's a standard TIFF tag that GDAL can read & write : 'TIFFTAG_DATETIME'. See
http://www.awaresystems.be/imaging/tiff/tifftags/datetime.html for the spec.
This should be interoperable with non GDAL based software.
> An easy-dirt way is just add Metadata Items to it. That is how I am doing:
> output_dst.SetMetadataItem('STARTDATE', start_date.isoformat(), '')
> output_dst.SetMetadataItem('STARTTIME', start_time.isoformat(), '')
> That would work as long as you are the same guy who writes the piece of code
> that read that data (stored on
> GDAL auxiliary XML files, not on TIFF tags by the way).
> Would be nice if we could use a standard Metadata schema.
