Linking our assets to specific references (like intervention files, objects, samples, …) is very useful, but we would like to go a step further and introduce annotation functionality to our entire collection. Using Annotorious + openseadragonJS , we have built an annotation workspace with filters and custom widgets for our high-resolution images. These widgets allow us to have annotations that serve different purposes: descriptive, tagging with keywords, link to URLs, stories, sample information, restoration technical information, … the possibilities are endless. This will allow us to link several types of information not only to the image, but to specific parts of the image.
Visually we can create color schemes to display the annotations with a different look according to specific information saved in the annotations. Currently there are 2 schemes available, color by type of annotation (default) or color by restoration information (varnish, types of damage, …)
