This application is on behalf of Project Andvari (US based research project funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH)). It is a simple interface via which users can view a sample object from a collected group and select terms from the supplied RDF thesaurus that appropriately describe the iconographic content of an object.
The application should be able to gather adequate data so that the project team may later assess:
Taking part in this is very simple. On the right hand side of the interface, an open licenced image will be loaded from one of two starting collections (Kringla and the British Museum) and we would like you to look at the image and decide which terms best describe the object in question. (Ignore backhoes, bulldozers and anything that is not ancient please!)
There are 6 classes that we would like you to think about for each object:
You may want to view more images of the object, if you do, look for the blue button labelled "original record" and if you click on this, it will open in a new window.
Please note: the concepts presented in this application do not represent the intended hierarchy of the draft thesaurus. A sample hierarchy is available for reference.
The drop down select interfaces allow you to select as many terms as you like for each class. So for instance the image below shows built environment terms chosen.
Once you have chosen all your terms for each class, think about whether there are any other terms you would suggest for tagging the image and enter these into the terms box as comma separated values. So for instance you might think:
odin, temple, banana
Then also think about any comments relating to the image and the tags you provided and if you feel you need to, enter these into the comments box. That is now complete! So press the submit button and thank you for helping the Andvari team!
