Annotate field books of natural history collections
The Semantic Field Book Annotator is a web application developed for domain experts to harvest structured annotations from field books, drawings and specimen labels of natural history collections. Users can draw bounding boxes over (zoomable) image scans of historical field notes, to which annotations can be attached. All metadata regarding an annotation event, annotation provenance, transcription and semantic interpretation of the text are stored in a knowledge base, which is accessible via a SPARQL endpoint and Web API.
