Let’s take a step back and look at turning these into an image service that is easy to use. We can apply the metadata to the whole service. If you would like to generate individual metadata files for each tile we can look into utilizing Voyager Search to achieve that goal (after we get the issues with Voyager Search corrected).
I downloaded the full NOAA West Coast 2016 oblique imagery set (described below) and uploaded the TIFs and VRTs to GHEARC in the “NOAA_2016_WestCoastOblique” folder (full path: \\GHEARC\GHE\PUB\NOAA_2016_WestCoastOblique). I also included copies of the metadata file (at the collection level) and a Text file including some notes on the download (source and metadata URLS, dates, etc.). If you’d like to pull some data for a project, I think it’s best done using the Coastal Imagery Viewer to navigate to your area of interest and getting the Image ID for the images there.
I’m not sure how to apply metadata to each TIF in a very large-scale bulk method, as there are 3,106 TIFs in total. So while I have project-level metadata, I do not, yet at least, have image-level metadata imported. Any suggestions? Or if there are any questions just let me know.

Subject: Notice of Data Availability - February 2016 El Nino Oblique Imagery collected by NOAA
We would like to share with you the announcement below from NOAA. Should you have any questions contact Mike Aslaksen, his full contact info is on the message.
All - see below for oblique geo-referenced imagery of the entire West Coast collected Feb 6-9 2016. On the same site is baseline imagery under the 2015 tab of imagery collected in September 2015. NOAA is collecting this data in order to assess impacts to several NOS mission areas including navigation and coastal zone management as well as support other mission partners including other NOAA offices, USGS, USACE, and FEMA.
The data is considered public domain and I encourage you share with other interested parties.
