- Image Annotation Req Items (RS3) from the original spec
- Image Annotation Tools
- review of Open Annotation Collaboration (OAC)
What we should do first, DeepZoom or Annotation?
The question was settled: both at the same time
Dominic: What are all the reasons you would want to annotate an image of a painting?
I want to get as full a list as possible. Do you have a comprehensive list? E.g.
- Identify features (icons)
- Bring attention to…… damage, marks, inscriptions
Maybe far-fetched ideas:
- an image annotation creates a conceptual sub-object that could have its own semantics, eg:
- "this here is the King of England which can be deduced from the lions on its robe" (actual annotation at Image Annotation Tools#Shared Canvas
- "this is a Woman's Head"
- "this has IconClass X"
- "this is painted by X, in the role of understudy"
- "this uses Technique X that's different from the technique in the rest of the painting"
- "this Head X is similar to that other Head Y in another painting"
- an image annotation may be correlated to painting coordinates, so that the annotations of several images can be correlated (but how exactly?)
Collages of several images are used often:
- in Raphael#Lightbox of all paintings: to compare paintings
- in MFPMFP: to explore or illustrate an arrangement, eg of a tryptich or altar
- in Image Annotation Tools#Shared Canvas: to put together pieces of a manuscript that are often stored in different institutions
