Principles

Descriptive metadata should be embedded in the image file itself.

  There are distinct advantages for embedding descriptive metadata directly in digital image files.

There are also disadvantages which must be accounted for.


Embedded metadata should be usable at all levels.

 It should take full advantage of XMP's interoperability and not focus on satisfying just one audience.

 

Intentions

Reconcile commercial photo and cultural heritage descriptive metadata standards.

 Create a crosswalk between CDWA Lite, VRA Core, ARTstor Core, Exif, IPTC IIM, and XMP.


Create open source tools for converting and embedding cultural heritage metadata using XMP.
