As we are all aware of, the metadata concept brings about the essential and significant relevance of files and file types in the whole concept of the metadata process. Files are what come out after all the metadata schemas have completed the metadata process. The file type of the metadata schema is what dictates where it is created and established.
These file types are also important in trying to determine whether or not these metadata schemas are capable of being controlled, manipulated, mapped, and managed. The file type is what delimits the other metadata features from getting control over the metadata schema. This is the reason why the file type is playing a significant role.
Some of the files types that are very common to metadata schema are the image file types such as JPEG, GIF, TIFF, and BMP; the sound and audio file type such as the WAV, AVI, and the MP3 file types; the Office file types such as DOC, XLS, and PPT files. These files types are capable of being controlled by the metadata features as they bear compatibility with one another and does not have any issue in terms of interoperability.
The metadata file types as deemed essential should not be ignored and taken with least precautions. They are capable of establishing a better means towards providing a more controlled metadata schema and at a certain can jeopardize the whole metadata schema. It is for this reason that the choosing of the data file types is given high importance by the metadata makers and developers.
