What lens should I buy next ?; Analysing and graphing a Digikam database using R

October 10, 2012

(This article was first published on Computing / Geek, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

I use the Open Source photo management Software Digikam (along with other tools such as Gimp and DarkTable).  I obviously need very little encouragement to combine my geeky hobbies, so I quickly tried to interrogate Digikam with R, which is easy, because Digikam keeps all it’s image info in a SQLite database, which R has support for.

So this post shows how I did it, along with some of the output, such as the focal length of my images over time, looks like I need a telephoto lens !  (this script and my digikam db are in github here)
