At the moment I am in the midst of writing about IT and ancient documents. This is a basic overlook of the research so far in this area. I decided to divide it into different subjects such as: text encoding, corpora/online resources, expert systems, character corpora, image analysis and image annotation. Today I am looking at the last subject: image annotation.
So far I have found a couple of projects that are working on this:
- TILE – Text-Image Linking Environment
- UVic Image Mark-up Tool Project
- VRE-SDM – Virtual Research Environment for the Study of Documents and Manuscripts
- DocSouth’s img2xml
Collaborative project aiming to develop a web based image mark-up tool for linking between encoded text and image annotations ( based on AXE – Ajax XML encoder).
Issue: Link to AXE is not working!
Desktop based mark-up tool conforming to TEI P5 XML
Finished pilot creating a workspace allowing collaborative annotation and organising of images while searching through related text datasets.
Enables the tracing of handwriting with output in SVG and linking to encoded texts.
Issue: Not a lot is written on this and many dead links!
If anyone reads this and knows of other projects that I haven’t displayed here please feel free to comment or drop me an email at henriette dot roued at classics dot ox dot ac dot uk. I am also very interested in hearing about any literature concerning this subject or any of the above subjects.
