After long experiences structuring and shaping databases for scientific purposes in the humanities, we came to the conclusion that most database projects are by far too complicated. We decided to keep the database behind our photographic archives as simple as possible. It’s limited to keyword tree and a slim database with minimal informations about the tree structure and the image data.
Nevertheless, it’s suited to organize large quantities of images. The simplicity helps to build up fast, time saving workflows, and – taking advantage of inherent metadata (Exif, IPTC, XMP) – allows an easy reuse of all image files for other purposes.
