Pundit: Semantically Structured Annotations for Web Contents and Digital Libraries
Semedia's paper presented at SDA 2012 is now online available.
This paper introduces Pundit : a novel semantic annotation tool that allows users to create structured data while annotating Web pages relying on stand-oﬀ mark-up techniques. Pundit provides support for diﬀerent types of annotations, ranging from simple comments to semantic links to Web of data entities and ﬁne granular cross-references and citations. In addition, it can be conﬁgured to include custom controlled vocabularies and has been designed to enable groups of users to share their annotations and collaboratively create structured knowledge. Pundit allows creating semantically typed relations among heterogeneous resources, both having diﬀerent multimedia formats and belonging to different pages and domains. In this way, annotations can reinforce existing data connections or create new ones and augment original information generating new semantically structured aggregations of knowledge. These can later be exploited both by other users to better navigate DL and Web content, and by applications to improve data management.
