This page is aimed at those volunteers who are kindly assisting Cranfield University in the process of categorising and organising the SoilPIC materials, and assumes a working knowledge of editing a Wiki site.


SoilPIC has adopted 'Dublin Core' as the information structure for descriptive image metadata. There is a related Wiki template to hold and present metadata in this format for each image. Using the standard Wiki means of utilising pre-defined templates, individual image pages can have a blank template attached and thence completed, thus (you may like to view the source for this section and copy it ready top paste to edited image pages):

== Summary == {{DublinCore | Title = | Creator = ~~~~, Cranfield University | Description = | Publisher = Cranfield University | Date = | Type = Still Image | Format = JPEG | Identifier = filename.jpg | Source = SoilPIC Archive | Language = N/A }}


A number of categories are identified for the classification of the images in SoilPIC. Images can belong to one or more categories. All images automatically belong to the category 'SoilPIC'. When editing images, please copy and paste the appropriate category/categories from the list below into the image's page description. Note the categories are arranged hierarchically. It is considered preferable not to combine multiple categories where one is the parent of another (you may like to view the source for this section and copy it ready to paste to edited image pages - omit the '*'s in pasting to pages, these are just to indicate the hierarchy):
