Issues brainstorm

  • ·         Making available a simple tool to see the differences in metadata present in the TIFF and the JPEG header
  • ·         Editing of the TIFF header to enter request and descriptive metadata that have been added to the JPEG header / to the repository holding the master images and the derivatives
  • ·         Minimising human contact (manual editing by a curator) with the TIFFs all by ensuring that the script or equivalent used to edit the TIFF metadata does not corrupt the TIFFs themselves
  • ·         Investigating the possibility of using JPEG2000 that would allow simple back conversion to TIFF – again, put in place a procedure / suggest tools for quality control
