[Digikam-users] digikam not showing Darwin Core metadata

Thanks everyone for the comments and ideas. I just have a couple of notes
and another question.

The photos I am working with are from a camera trap project in the western
amazon, Darwin Core allows embedding information that is relevant to
researchers studying biodiversity. Basically we are dealing with photos of
animals taken in the wild.

exiftool was mentioned and I should mention that it supports full
read/write support for DwC (Darwin Core). That's how I embedded the sample
metadata to some test images.


Would it be necessary to get read/write support built into exiv2 in order
to allow digikam full access to this metadata?
