Crowdsourcing and commentary with IIIF and W3C web annotations

Start: Oct 18, 2017 5:30:00 PM
End: Oct 18, 2017 6:30:00 PM

The rapid adoption of the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) by institutions worldwide means that millions of digital objects (comprising billions of images) are exposed to the web using a standard that allows people to make statements about them, in the form of annotations. We can consume the source material for research and crowdsourcing in standards-compliant tools, and share the output from this work as interoperable W3C annotations.
