    Is DarwinCore XMP metadata useful in nature photography?

    Alan Pater Level 1

      (Or, for that matter, in pet photography or flower photography.)

       

      Darwin Core (DwC) is a metadata standard designed for storing such information a species, behaviour and other relevant biodiversity tags. Frank Bungartz at the Charles Darwin Foundation has implemented DwC as an XMP schema and it has been included in exiftool for a while now. It will also appear in the next version of exiv2.

       

      So, a couple of questions:

       

           How do nature photographers currently manage this type of data?

           What would it take to include this data in your workflow?

       

           Or is it a complete waste of time?
