##urltools A package for reading EXIF metadata into R



EXIF metadata provides information about the nature of a JPEG image (usually a photograph) including camera make and model, f-stop, the ISO speed, the length of the exposure, the lens used, and the timestamp the image was taken at. The exif package allows you to read this information into R. It is fully vectorised and based on compiled code.

Unfortunately it does require C++11, so will only work on the latest (3.1+) versions of R. You’ve been warned.
