Document Roadmap 

After reading this document, readers may turn to separate living 
documents discussing individual multimedia annotation vocabularies [1], 
and other relevant tools and resources. [2]  Most of the current 
approaches to image annotation are not based on Semantic Web languages. 
Interoperability between these technologies and RDF and OWL-based 
approaches is not the topic of this document, but interested readers can 
look at the Multimedia Annotation Interoperability Framework document. [3]


Target Audience 

This document is target at everybody with an interest in image 
annotation, ranging from non-professional end-users that are annotating 
their personal digital photos to professionals working with digital 
pictures in image and video banks, audiovisual archives, museums, 
libraries, media production and broadcast industry, etc. 

Objectives 

  * To illustrate the benefits of using semantic technologies in 
    image annotations. 

  * To provide guidelines for applying semantic technologies in 
    this area. 

  * To collect currently used vocabularies for Semantic Web-based 
    image annotation.

  * To provide use cases with examples of Semantic Web-based image 
    annotation.

Discussion of this document is invited on the public mailing list 
public-xg-mmsem@w3.org (public archives). Public comments should 
include "[MMSEM-Image]" as subject-prefix. [4]
