EXIF, RDF and Flickr Metadata Management

0 comments suggest edit

I’ve been following with interest Shelley’s progress with WordForm, a blogging engine. I hadn’t realized that WordForm was a fork in WordPress until she recently mentioned it.

In this particular post she describes some of the work she’s doing to handle metadata for images. She’s extracting EXIF data from images and storing as RDF statements in the database. She’s also pulling EXIF data from Flickr via its RESTful API. This is some sweet stuff that I hope finds its way into Subtext sometime in the future, though we have more pressing immediate concerns.

I’ll just wait to see how it pans out for WordForm and we’ll STEAL STEAL STEAL (of course giving full credit and props back to Shelley). ;)

    Will the source code be availble for subtext? will it be written in c#?

    Yes, the source code (in progress) is already available via SourceForge. You'll have to use CVS anonymous access to get the source right now.

    It is written in C#
