The Controlled Vocabulary Keyword Catalog

Multi-User version for Daminion 3.4 or later

The Controlled Vocabulary Keyword Catalog or CVKC, can be used with version 3.4 or later of Daminion (purchased separately). Daminion is a multi-user, digital image management system optimized for small teams. The 4.5 version uses a Windows LAN-based server and includes a read-only web-client so your Mac or Linux users can access files.

The CVKC can be imported into Daminion server (or standalone) using a unicode compatible Text file formatted specifically for this image database. When installed, the Catalog Tags panel should look like what is shown in the image below.

The full version 3.x of the CVKC contains approximately 11,000 terms organized in a hierarchical structure. For detailed information on how to install the CVKC see the Daminion support page. The CVKC-FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) page covers other related questions.

To request a sample of the CVKC, which contains a portion of two of the more than 20 top level hierarchies available in the full version, simply send email using the address on the Contact page and indicate you'd like the Daminion CVKC sample.
