  6. 6. CR00140 Add sameAs to relationships <ul><li>Add sameAs to broader, narrower and related </li></ul><ul><li>The properties broader, narrower and related (from the Relationship Group) should provide a list of conceptURIs in addition to the one expressed by the qcode attribute of these elements. For this purpose a sameAs child property should be added to these properties. </li></ul><ul><li>If a provider wants to annotate e.g. a province as subject of the news item and wants to add the superior country by a broader property it may be required to add the 2 *and* the 3 letter code for this country. Currently only one identifer can be applied, either 2 *or* 3 letter code. To overcome this limitation one to many sameAs properties could provide a list of equivalent identifiers for the same concept. </li></ul>© 2009 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved
  7. 7. CR00141Extend infoSource to be used for a source <ul><li>Extension of infoSource to be used for a source </li></ul><ul><li>Modify the definition of the Information Source property to extend its semantics: while the current definition says &quot;A party (person or organisation) which originate some information used to create or enhance the content&quot; parties which modified, enhanced, distributed, aggregated or supplied the content should be included in future. </li></ul><ul><li>A party having the role of being a source of the content - in a wide sense - must have its place in the G2 metadata of item. One option was to add a property in parallel to infoSource. But as infoSource is already used for this purpose, with specific role vocabularies, - pushing the semantics to its limits - it is proposed to add this use to the definition. Having a new property and infoSource in parallel might also cause some confusion about where exactly to draw the line. </li></ul>© 2009 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved
  8. 8. CR00142 Adding descriptive properties to a package group <ul><li>Adding descriptive properties to a package group </li></ul><ul><li>Allow adding metadata which describe a group of a Package Item. </li></ul><ul><li>A Group within a Package Item is usually created for a specific purpose: a Group will wrap a group references to content in a specific context. This context may require a description or labelling. Further, a group may require special processing; this can be expressed by a signal property. Finally a note to the Editor of the receiver could be added as background information. </li></ul>© 2009 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved
  9. 9. CR00143 Add hascontent attribute to NI content <ul><li>Add hascontent attribute to the children of contentSet </li></ul><ul><li>of a News Item </li></ul><ul><li>Add a flag to the child properties of contentSet of a NewsItem for indicating if the child property i/ already includes content, or ii/ is currently only an empty wrapper. </li></ul><ul><li>Not all planned renditions of the content of a News Item may be available at the time of the release of the initial version. However, at this time it might be known that, e.g., an HD rendition of the existing SD rendition of a video will follow soon. To make the receiver aware of the planned release of additional rendition(s), their elements may be added to a contentSet i/ with only metadata being defined, but ii/ with no actual content being provided (until a subsequent version of the item is released). This state must be indicated by using the added hascontent attribute. </li></ul>© 2009 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved

CR00144 extend the attributes of an Icon <ul><li>Extend the attributes of an Icon element </li></ul><ul><li>Add a set of basic content characteristic properties to icons. </li></ul>© 2009 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved orientation The orientation of the visual content of an image in regard to the standard rendition of the digital image data. colourspace The colour space of an image.

  12. 12. CR00146 new derivedfrom attribute <ul><li>Add a new derivedfrom attribute to all properties with a why attribute </li></ul><ul><li>Add a 'derivedfrom' attribute to all elements supporting the 'why' property, in order </li></ul><ul><li>to be able to indicate the concept that the element was derived from. </li></ul><ul><li>Is is useful to be able to indicate, for instance that the subject Western Europe was </li></ul><ul><li>derived from the Subject Great Britain. Typically the directly applied Subject (Great </li></ul><ul><li>Britain) will have associated confidence/relevance properties, but the derived </li></ul><ul><li>Subject (Western Europe) will not. Indicating that Western Europe is --derivedfrom-- </li></ul><ul><li>> Great Britain will enable downstream processors to apply confidence/relevance to </li></ul><ul><li>the derived Subject, based on the (now known) directly applied subject. </li></ul>© 2010 IPTC (www.iptc.org) All rights reserved
