RDF for self-describing images
[1/4] from: jasonic:panix at: 17-Nov-2001 16:37
Following up on the scope of [do %image.png] I came across a nice RDF image meta data abstract: http://www.tasi.ac.uk/2000/09/rdfmeta/ An informal note describing an ILRT/TASI testbed study on embedding RDF metadata in self-describing images. Some useful links at the end PNG is an obvious candidate for image embedded metadata. QA: Does anyone have knowledge/experience about how widespread PNG readers or the trends for using PNG? Q2: Anyone heard of metadata embedding in JPEG? PNG is my first choice for now, with SWF as its dynamic cousin. But I would love to find a way to keep JPEG in the family... any leads most welcome on this topic thanks - Jason

Have you looked at MNG as a dynamic cousin? Enjoy!! Ammon

I read a very little about it .. not played with it hands on at all. My impression, either too early or too late for MNG. do tell me more.. SWF [Flash5+] has so many great features plus a presently expanding player installed user base that it is hard to see much serious competiton right now. even hype about handhelds, kiosks and Playstation etc. Above all I like it because it does merge vector and raster graphics well, and has a powerful object oriented paradigm, helped by ActionScript The #best dynamic SWF examples I have seen anywhere yet is at a beautiful generative art site: http://www.levitated.net/ ./Jason

Just checking, I know I was quite excited about the proposal a couple of years ago when I first saw it (MNG), but since then I got out of web building. I don't know its current status, but I do know that it would be neat if it is as good as they said it was going to be... Enjoy!! Ammon
