First off, I wanted to say that I am new to Omeka, and its been a while since I worked with data in this way, so please be patient with my inquiry.
I'm looking to create an element set that meets the standards of the Europeana Data Model (EDM). The details can be found here...
My problem is that their metadata has 2 levels. There are Core Classes and Contextual Classes. But all are relevant to each item. The PDF file at the following link describes the rules for metadata that is EDM compliant...
When researching how to create an element set in Omeka, each resource I find online only talks about single level data. Like the Dublin Core, for example, its just 10-12 items, with no sub-items, or linked metadata at different levels.
Is this possible in Omeka?
I also tried to find more examples of how to write element sets, but I just have the example here, http://omeka.org/codex/Creating_an_Element_Set.
My question about that set, is how editable are these fields? It lists name, record_type and data_type, for example. Could I change those names to something like, core_class instead? Or are these hard coded?
For example, could this...
'record_type' => [(string) record type name, optional],
'core_type' => [(string) core type name, optional],
This is more of a programming question I know, but again its been a long time since I coded anything like this.
Thanks to anyone that can help!
