This package contains some files that are used for test data. Contributions of particular kinds of additional files are welcome.
"exif-org/" – JPEG/Exif and other files, from http://exif.org/samples.html, courtesy of John Hawkins.
- "public-domain/" – Files known to be in the legal public domain, for testing with a breadth of file creators (e.g., different camera models) and situations (e.g., different Ogg container layouts).
"jpeg/" – JPEG/Exif and JPEG/JFIF files from public domain, especially verbatim as saved by particular camera models.
Set camera to capture the image in a relatively small file size. This means setting camera to low resolution, high compression, low quality, etc. (The small size is to make including files with the package more practical.)
- Choose a photographic subject (e.g., stop sign, cloud, thumbtack, light switch) that:
Does not contain any trademarks or copyrighted material (no brand names, logos, book pages, etc.).
Does not contain anything personally-identifiable, such as faces.
Is G-rated. (No showing off Racket programmer abs.)
Is not too complicated, so should compress well.
Take photo with camera.
Do not edit the photo in any way at all – it must be byte-for-byte identical to how the camera first wrote it to your memory card.
Email the photo to: email@example.com
In the text of the email, please state “This image is in the public domain.” Note that you are legally giving up all copyright to this image, to make including it in a regression test suite more practical.
Assemble a suite of test input files, without legal encumbrances. Preferrably small enough file sizes to include in PLaneT package, as part of built-in unit tests.
Needs more real-world testing with diversity of files.
Malformed or insufficiently supported TIFF and Exif files can result in infinite loops or use excessive resources.
Support for additional Exif MakerNotes, especially Nikon ones.
A little bit more support for Canon Exif MakerNotes is possible, such as decoding Custom Functions.
Add support for getting info about multiple streams in Ogg files.
Support additional file types, especially JPEG/JFIF, PNG, and the multiple MP3 ID3 variants.
Add feature to map properties of different formats to common ontology.
Make a variation on scan-mediafiles with a fold interface, such as for various ways of getting incremental results, including if the scanning is in concurrent thread or process.
- PLaneT 1:0 —
Initial version, for alpha testing and soliciting additional test files. Some subsequent releases are likely to have backward-incompatible changes, such as changes to types of properties.
