Validator is a tools package used to automatically validate digital objects, such as image files, PDF files, XML data (METS, ALTO) and other derivatives. Validation is the process of checking if something satisfies certain criteria. Examples would include checking if a statement is true (valid), or if data is compliant with a certain standard. For digital objects there are many variations for output data.
The validation is typically performed in two steps: Automated validation and Manual validation.
The Automated Validation is checking all files for specific parameters and integrity and ensures all data is of consistent quality.The Manual Validation is performed by operators using the Validator user interface, checking samples for image quality, meta data, text quality or other parameters that cannot be validated by a machine (subjective criteria).
The Validator software provides reports and statistics of the results.
