The UVic Image Markup Tool Project

The TEI XML file format

From version 1.7 onwards, the Image Markup Tool now no longer uses SVG. Instead, annotation areas on the image are defined using the <facsimile>, <surface> and <zone> elements now available in the transcr module of P5. The basic outline of the file format looks like this:

<TEI xmlns="">
    <!-- Header content, including definitions of annotation categories. -->
  <facsimile xml:id="imtAnnotatedImage">
      <!-- The image which is annotated: -->
      <graphic url="imgMarkupLogo.png" width="377px" height="259px"></graphic>
      <!-- The zones on the image which are linked to annotations: -->
      <zone xml:id="imtArea_0" rendition="Graphical_Components" ulx="201" uly="42" lrx="341" lry="133" rend="visible"></zone>
      <zone xml:id="imtArea_1" rendition="Graphical_Components" ulx="36" uly="21" lrx="199" lry="122" rend="visible"></zone>
      <div xml:id="imtImageAnnotations">
      <!-- The annotations which are linked to zones: -->
        <div corresp="#imtArea_0" type="imtAnnotation">
          <head>Palm trees</head>
            <p>Two palm trees form part of the image, for no good reason.</p>
        <div corresp="#imtArea_1" type="imtAnnotation">
          <head>Illustration of an annotation rubber-band</head>
            <p>This shows a resizable "rubber-band" used to outline the image area to which an annotation applies.</p>
