The XMP (Extensible Metadata Platform) format was developed by Adobe as a means to standardize metadata across multiple file types. It is often used for organizing large numbers of files into a searchable database. XMP data is supported by Adobe software and various third-party programs.
File Type 2XMind Markers Package
An XMP file is a markers package used by XMind, a mind mapping and brainstorming application. It contains one or more markers, which are icons used to denote special meaning such as the urgency of a task or what people are involved. Some of the marker categories include faces, task progress, task priority, arrows, symbols, and month.
While XMind comes with default XMP files you can import your own images into the application for customized markers. You can access the import and export functionality by selecting the "View Menu" icon when the Markers window is open.
