eHUMANITIES DESKTOP - An Architecture for Flexible Annotation in Iconographic Research

Rüdiger Gleim, Paul Warner, Alexander Mehler

Abstract

This article addresses challenges in maintaining and annotating image resources in the field of iconographic research. We focus on the task of bringing together generic and extensible techniques for resource and annotation management with the highly specific demands in this area of research. Special emphasis is put on the interrelation of images, image segements and textual contents. In addition, we describe the architecture, data model and user interface of the open annotation system used in the image database application that is a part of the eHumanities Desktop.
