Is someone willing to talk with me by phone or email to answer basic questions (or point me to tutorials I could read)? I’m having trouble understanding how to get data into Omeka so I can start creating sites.
I’m trying to set up a site that provides access to a set of about 10,000 photos. I have an Omeka S installation, including CSV Import. I have used FTP to upload 40 test photos to the server. I have a CSV file with metadata: each photo’s title, description, date, and pointer to the image file. I have a CSV file listing all the people who appear in at least one photo. (Many appear in more than one.) I have a CSV file listing each appearance (saying which person, which photo, and coordinates within the photo).
I think I need to define Classes for photos, people, and appearances of a person in a photo, and I don’t understand how to do that. I think I should define a Vocabulary of people’s names, and I don’t know how to do that. I don’t understand how to use CSV Import at all, or how to include information in the CSV file to make an Item refer to another Item.
I would sure appreciate some help getting started.
