Archiving and Management of Digital Images Based on an Embedded Metadata Framework

Cjien-cheng Liu, Chao-chen Chen


Digital image files and metadata are two critical and functionally-related components in digital archiving and management. However, as metadata and digital image files are independent, such applications have proven to be relatively difficult. This research attempts to develop metadata storage and exchange through extended techniques of embedded metadata in order to combine information in files with files themselves and further extend and control other related information. A structure of Embedded Metadata Framework (EMF) will be planned as a reference platform for development of embedded metadata in the digital archive system. Finally, hurdles remaining in such applications will be addressed for the purpose of future researches.
