The UVic Image Markup Tool Project

Goals of the Project

Many tools exist for marking up text in XML. However, for a number of our projects, we need to be able to mark up images -- by which I mean that we need to be able to describe and annotate images, and store the resulting data in TEI XML files. For this, relatively few tools exist, and those that do are either rather too complicated for novices not expert at markup (for example the Edition Production Technology) or use a proprietary file format (such as INote). Our aim is to produce a tool which creates conformant TEI P5 XML files, but which has a simple enough interface that it can be used by people with little or no experience in editing XML code.
