Dear all


After a more inside exploration on the tools for image annotation, here are

basic characteristics that could be used for the categorization of the


1) Type of content: Jpeg Images,Video etc

2) Type of metadata: Descriptive, administrative, structural etc

3) Format of metadata: OWL, RDF

4) Annotation Level: Extraction of visual characteristics and association

    with domain ontology concepts-operation using ontologies.

5) Operation mode: plug-in, stand-alone

6) Open source: YES, NO


Concerning the benchmarking, it could be based on the creation of some

taken from the use cases which will be annotated with the aid of all the
tools. In my 

opinion, it is better to avoid criticism on the tools. It is rather better
to provide the 

users with the output of the tools and leave them to decide which is better
for their 



Best Regards,

Nikolaos Simou.
