Editing Metadata

Editing metadata in iBase is easy thanks to the intuitive item edit and batch edit pages. iBase's metadata schema can be configured to be as comprehensive or simple as you need, with support for hierarchical keywords and geolocation data.

Flexible Metadata Schema

Flexible Metadata Schema

iBase comes pre-configured with a Dublin Core metadata schema to get you started and can be configured to have as many simultaneous schemas as you need, each of which can have as few or many fields as you want. Supported field types include text, number, multi-value picklists, datetime, currency and more.

Single Item Edit

To edit the metadata of a single file, iBase provides an easy-to-use page which presents you with a preview of the file – with the ability to zoom in – alongside each of its associated fields laid out in whichever order you prefer. You can also edit geolocation data and keywords on this page and add the file to one or more collections.

Batch Edit

Batch Edit

The Batch Edit page allows you to edit one or more fields values for multiple files simultaneously. Each field has options including overwrite, append and search & replace. There is no limit to the number of files that can be edited simultaneously and this page also allows you to update geolocation data and hierarchical keywords.

Hierarchical Keywords

iBase's hierarchical keyword feature is useful for when you want to maintain a controlled vocabulary of hierarchical terms, or import data from an existing thesaurus. Users can be given the ability to modify the hierarchy or simply assign terms to files, depending on their level of access.

Geolocation Data

Geolocation Data

The majority of modern digital cameras capture geolocation data about a picture when it is taken – iBase can import this data and display it in the form of a mini Google map on the item page. If a file does not have any geolocation data, you can search for locations and assign them to the file using the same feature.
