This talk was part of a session at the Visual Resources Association conference March 2014 called "VRA Core 4 Unbound: Expanding Core capabilities through embedded metadata, APIs, and editors" The session description: Since the publication of the VRA Core 4.0 (Core 4) data standard in 2007 many institutions have developed tools that extend its capabilities either to support a local need or to enable the interaction of Core 4 data with data encoded in other standards. The proliferation of these tools within the last few years illustrate how the Core 4 has moved from a US-based standard developed for a specific audience to having a much more international uptake and even adoption within communities not originally envisioned e.g. biodiversity.
The speakers will talk about tools they have developed that help demonstrate how Core 4 can be incorporated within embedded metadata standards; how it can be used in conjunction with scientific data standards; and how a Core 4 editor can easily convert, store, and exchange data in XML.
