THE ART OF MULTI-FACETED TAGGING - Interweaving Spatial Annotations, Categories, Meaningful URIs and Tags

Abstract

In this paper we present TagMe!, a tagging and exploration front-end for Flickr images, which enables users to attach tag assignments to a specific area within an image and to categorize tag assignments. We analyze the differences between tags and categories and show how both facets can be applied to learn semantic relations between concepts referenced by tags and categories. TagMe! automatically maps tags and categories to DBpedia URIs to clearly define the meaning. In our experiments we compare different strategies to realize such semantic mappings and show that already lightweight approaches map tags and categories with high precisions (86.85% and 93.77% respectively). We further discuss how multi-faceted tagging helps to improve the retrieval of folksonomy entities. The TagMe! system is currently available at http://tagme.groupme.org
