Software for metadata handling!


What is metadata? - the term is often used to describe digital information e.g. a pdf-document where metadata can consist of information such as title, author, date of publish etc, for an image it could consist of the photographer or when the image was taken. It is thus not the content itself that is referred to but rather a description of the content. The term is however broader than just describing digital content, it can be used to describe any object.
