NEW SITE COMING

This is a placeholder page for a new site, www.metametadata.com, which will be to metadata as they are to data. I have now added content to the 'Further Information' link, which contains a long listing of tools, applications, and other links related to metadata.

Concentrating on Mac OS X for the time being, this develops topics that I have introduced in my regular columns The Works, in the UK Mac magazine, MacUser.

I am currently developing the content for this site and expect it to be fully populated by the end of August 2007. Please check back regularly to see progress.

If you feel that you can contribute, particularly if you understand metadata on Windows or Linux platforms, please email me.

 
 

 

SEARCHING
Metadata provide powerful ways of searching and accessing content from large media libraries.

DISTINCTION
Metadata can be used to confer qualities on data that distinguish its importance, or whether it needs to be handled specially.

INFORMATION
Metadata tags contain additional information about data that cannot be embedded in the main file.
