Using metadata as the primary method of organisation allows resources to be classified in many different ways at once, ensuring that it can be found via a multitude of different criteria. ResourceSpace utilises advanced metadata tools to give depth to the structuring of your files.
ResourceSpace allows you to retain control over the input of metadata by restricting the entry fields that are available to complete. Create drop down lists, radio buttons, check boxes or category trees with fixed metadata selection options to manage the amount and type of metadata that is submitted.
Embedded data extraction
Exiftool is a third-party tool which allows the data embedded within an image to be automatically uploaded into its resource metadata. This applies to any metadata stored within a file, and the fields that this is applied to can be configured by an administrator.
