What are Applications?
Applications are additional capabilities provided by the Dataloop platform.
There are two types of applications:
- Metadata applications: Defined metadata, that once added to an item/annotation will add UI functionality like modalities.
- Shebang items: Special item types, handled by custom data tools like in Similarity and Links .
While technically you may modify a metadata, this is not recommended due to backward comparability compliance. Use the SDK to create/modify system metadata.
