  • Geolocating with IIIF Presentation API 2.1 Annotation
    The experience with Annotation during the initial phases of implementing this syntax was positive. We found it prudent to investigate Annotation again using IIIF Presentation API 3.0. Implementation Description Below you will see an empty Manifest geolocated via a geographic polygon. There is an Annotation Page containing a single Annotation with coordinates to central Paris, […]
  • Geolocating with IIIF Presentation API 3.0: Part 3
    Having found success with IIIF Presentation API 3 Annotation, we look to see if services can support GeoJSON-LD. Implementation Description Below you will see an empty Manifest geolocated via a GeoJSON service. The body of that service is a GeoJSON-LD Point. Example JSON { “@context”:[ “http://geojson.org/geojson-ld/geojson-context.jsonld”, “http://iiif.io/api/presentation/3/context.json” ], “id”:”http://www.example.org/manifest/3″, “type”:”Manifest”, “label”:{ “en”:[ “Example IIIF Presentation […]
  • Geolocating with IIIF Presentation API 3.0: Part 2
    Annotation was successful during the first phase of using IIIF Presentation API 3.0 for geolocating an entire Web entity.  Another piece is to ensure that we could provide geolocated assertion upon an entity fragment, since situations like inset maps are common and need specific geospatial information that does not apply to the entire entity. Implementation […]

  • Geolocating with IIIF Presentation API 2.1 Services
    The shortcomings of the Annotation syntax meant looking for another option. The other option of intertwining syntax is IIIF Presentation API 2.1 services. Initial investigation led to a supported GeoJSON extension, which meant there was already a foundation set for working with GeoJSON under the scope of the API. Implementation Description Below you will see […]
