This sounds like an interesting topic to learn from. I suggest that we 
follow up and maybe provide a demo to let him use for testing?

I have piled up quite some data for a current project.

In order to keep track of the data I would like to use some automatic 
to create a data catalog.

The idea is to cycle through all folders and sub-folders and create a 
which shows:
* basic data (projection, extend)
* attribute table columns
* data preview

I found two solutions:
* SpatialDataCataloguingScript at

=> this works well after some fixing.
But how do I best use the generated XML file?

Apparently, gvSIG has some tool as well:
Semi-automatic Metadata Extraction from Imagery and Cartographic data

What can you recommend?

Thanks in advance,
