  1. Customized meta data: Is there a generalized equivalent for something like digikam?

    Hello,

    It just came to my mind, that it would be a terrific help with keeping track
    of my research data, if there was something analogous with digikam but with
    a much less file type specialized scope. An aplication that reads in a
    defined part of your file system and allows you to create custom metadata
    (kept in a parallel db structure) to your files:
    - pdf x was suggested reading by y and bred idea z
    - image a was aquired from experiment b under conditions c. Conlcusion from
    it is d. Follow up experiment can be found under e.
    ....

    Random things like that.

    Pointers? Have to embarrasedly accept to be in line with the mus slashdot
    flamed article http://www.icefox.net/articles/typemanager.php ...

    Joh

    Somebody recently suggested BasKet as a tool to organize data. (I think it was
    discussed on debian-science, but I am not sure.)
    http://basket.kde.org/
    (It is currently only included in Sid.)

    It seems to do a least some of the things that you want.

    Regards,
    Florian

    Probably not exactly what you have in mind, but I just stumbled upon
    kdissert, a sort of mind mapping tool. Version 0.3.8 is in sarge,
    version 1.05 in unstable.

    apt-cache show kdissert for a short description
    Homepage: http://freehackers.org/~tnagy/kdissert/

    There are also freemind and vym, but they have dependencies in unstable.
