Hello there,

I'm researching into the semantic analysis of complementary resources  
right now, and I'm about to start work on an automated image annotator.

I have got to the stage of my RDF file being generated and I'm now  
trying to figure out a way for the user or their application to  
retrieve the RDF version of the image.

I have found a couple of helpful things from [ http://www.w3.org/TR/photo-rdf/ 
  ];

"The RDF can be also be fetched directly without doing Content  
Negotiation, by just adding the wanted MIME type after a semicoln (;)  
e.g.: foo.jpg;application%2Frdf+xml ("%2F" is "/", escaped for  
occurrence in a URL.)"

This doesn't work for me on the image set [ http://jigsaw.w3.org/Yves/Australia/1998/04/ 
  ] which are supposed to support RDF metadata.

I also saw somewhere that you can actually embed the RDF data inside a  
COM comment in the image too.

*** There's not much else to dig around in on this topic by the looks  
of things, could anyone give me a pointer?

Many thanks,
Dan Smith
