Digital Photo Collections Revisited

A couple weeks ago I wrote a post about using low-cost facial recognition software for digital photo collections, and how this feature might be leveraged by Libraries & Archives.

Well, the topic obviously caught Kathy Bryce over at Andornot. She's got a full blown experiment in the works!

Kathy's been experimenting with exporting the photos & metadata out of Picasa into XML, and then parsing the data for import back into DB Textworks.

I'm glad to hear someone's taken the idea one step further, and that Kathy (and her clients) might get some value from it. Very cool! :)
