Are you interested in standardizing metadata across diverse digital files? The eXtensible Metadata Platform (XMP) is an ISO Standard that uses XML language to define and process extensible metadata, and can be embedded in a great variety of files using free software such as exiftool, BWF Metaedit, Metadata++, MetaLith, Geosetter and many more. In this workshop, Adobe System's Leonard Rosenthol will explain the origin of the XMP standard, provide case studies, and delve into some of the flexible ways you can embed metadata into file formats from pdfs to image files, audio files and datasets.
NOTE: In order to take full advantage of this workshop, please bring a laptop and download Exiftool beforehand: https://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/
