metadata from Corbis images is mapped to the keyword vocabulary and connects
customers' words with our images, powering search in a consistent and
comprehensive way. The ingested metadata is tightly linked to the work done by
the Vocabulary team and to troubleshooting search issues on CorbisImages.com,
since search issues often intersect with recall, precision, automapping, and
ingested, searchable metadata.

or correcting wrong tags on media partner and contributor images as needed.

•Keep abreast of the latest metadata advances and trends and offer
improvements to our semantic data, controlled vocabularies, metadata
automapping processes and search features.

•Use SQL to identify and perform metadata quality assurance across the archive
and improve the correctness and consistency of product data across
collections. Improve the relevancy of customer search results by performing
metadata clean-up tasks downstream of controlled vocabulary changes.

•Maintain up-to-date knowledge and understanding of Corbis, Veer and
Greenlight keywording and vocabulary standards as well as database and search
engine intricacies.

•Develop and document metadata and keywording standards.
