Preview - API Data Fields

Introduction

Each Europeana field has different names in different contexts. We have a theoretical and RDF context, where we returns qualified names such as dc:title. In search the same field becomes proxy_dc_title, in search result it is simply title, and in object display it is the Proxy object's dcTitle field. Some fields as part of aggregated fields, and facets. These are special fields which cover the content of multiple fields to provide a common entry point for similar fields.

Sample record with all fields

For testing purposes, a sample record is available which contains almost all available fields in the EDM schema. This record can be used for testing purposes and to make sure that your application can work with all the different types of fields and information. The identifier for this record is:

/000002/_UEDIN_214

Classes, fields and facets

Meaning of columns:

  • EDM Field: The field's name in the Europeana metadata scheme
  • Name in search: The name we should use in search queries
  • Datatype: The fields data type in searching
  • Name in search result: The field's name in search call response
  • Name (record): The field's name in the object call response
  • Aggregated Field/Facet: The name of aggregated fields and facets which cover this field.

Technical metadata facets

Facets that relate to the metadata extracted from the media, such as images and videos.

Facet nameDatatypeMedia typeDescription
MEDIAbooleanTo indicate whether an URL to the full media file is present in the edm:isShownBy or edm:hasView metadata and is resolvable.
MIME_TYPEstringMime-type of the file, e.g. image/jpeg
IMAGE_SIZEstringImageSize in megapixels of an image, values: small (< 0.5MP), medium (0.5-1MP), large (1-4MP) and extra_large (> 4MP)
IMAGE_COLOURbooleanImageLists 'true' for colour images. An alias to this facet is IMAGE_COLOR, note that for non-colour images you cannot provide the 'false' value. Use the greyscale-facet instead.
IMAGE_GREYSCALEbooleanImageLists 'true' for greyscale images. An alias to this facet is IMAGE_GRAYSCALE, note that for colour images you cannot provide the 'false' value. Use the colour-facet instead.
COLOURPALETTEstringImageThe most dominant colours present in images, expressed in HEX-colour codes. See colour palette.
IMAGE_ASPECTRATIOstringImagePortrait or landscape.
VIDEO_HDbooleanVideoLists 'true' for videos that have a resolution higher than 576p.
VIDEO_DURATIONstringVideoDuration of the video, values: short (< 4 minutes), medium (4-20 minutes) and long (> 20 minutes).
SOUND_HQbooleanSoundLists 'true' for sound files where the bit depth is 16 or higher or if the file format is a lossless file type (ALAC, FLAC, APE, SHN, WAV, WMA, AIFF & DSD). Note that 'false' does not work for this facet.
SOUND_DURATIONstringSoundDuration of the sound file, values: very_short (< 30 seconds), short (30 seconds - 3 minutes), medium (3-6 minutes) and long (> 6 minutes).
TEXT_FULLTEXTbooleanTextLists 'true' for text media types which are searchable, e.g. a PDF with text.
