To efficiently use OpenAtlas with IIIF we added functionality which enables users to mark an area of an image and add a description and/or link it to an entity.

  • Subject changed from Add description files to uploaded files to Additional IIIF functionality
  • Target version changed from 7.10.0 to 7.15.0

We discussed this (thank you Christoph for your wise input) and have a few ideas how to implement this.
Current approach would be to add a text field for images (where appropriate) and store information added there to an extra table in the web schema.
We also realized that we have to adapt our approach slightly, it makes much more sense to first implement (basic) IIIF functionality before we add extra features for it.

As far as I understood, you can make annotations with most viewers, e.g. Universal Viewer or Mirador, but it will only be stored locally in the browser. To store the information in a manifest, you need an annotation storage/server by either developing ourselves or taking an existing one: https://github.com/IIIF/awesome-iiif#annotation-servers

And an interesting video on this matter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y0I5_BW1OLQ&ab_channel=IIIF

For Mirandor there is a plugin: https://github.com/ProjectMirador/mirador-annotations. It kinda looks stale (last update Apr 2022), but maybe useful.

I tried to install https://github.com/ProjectMirador/mirador-annotations, but it has dependency issued with Mirador 3.3.0. There is an issue for that: https://github.com/ProjectMirador/mirador-annotations/issues/75. And here an installation guide to install the not released Mirador version using React 17 instead of 16: https://github.com/ProjectMirador/mirador/discussions/3768

Recogito implemented a IIIF Annotation tool. It is a really great example, how it can look like.

I found out, which tool Recogito uses, it is called Annotarious and is developed by Rainer Simon. It works either on simple images or with OpenSeadragon (also a IIIF viewer). I will try to make it work with OpenSeadragon.

The Leaflet idea, which we talked in person is nice, but I fear, that leaflet can only handle GeoTIFF, png and jpeg.

After playing around, back to Leaflet. Stefan Eichert told me, that there is a IIIF Leaflet Plugin: Leaflet-IIIF which supports the IIIF Image API and all Leaflet plugins. It looks good, and a first prototype (viewing and drawing without labelling or saving) is available under feature/iiif-annotation-leaflet.

Christoph got the leaflet IIIF annotation system running. But we will also look into annotorious again, because of more functionality.

Unfortunately this won't make it into the planned New Year major release. It's generally working but is still missing some functionality, e.g. link annotation to specific entities.

@Nicholas Melvani: we will however provide you with a "peek review" after the 8.0.0 major release in January. I already talked with Zachary and he agreed to deploying a development version at the MAMEMS backend. We will let you know once done.

The feature is basically finished, only things missing are:
  • Endpoint tests (the rest I did already)
  • Documentation in manual (done shortly before release because waiting for possible user feedback)

@Bernhard Koschiček-Krombholz, so we could merge this to develop once test coverage is 100% again. I didn't merged it now because you had other merging plans too as far as I remember.

Tests are done and everything works as expected. Thank you, Alex.
I will close this issue, and write the documentation on my personal list.
