A framework for the standardized description of handwritten annotations

Marcel Götze

Abstract


In this paper we introduce a novel way for the standardized description of handwritten annotations onan electronic document. This approach allows it on theone hand to describe the annotation itself which means the geometric representation. On the other hand, information about the handwritten annotation likeauthor, type, or the text it refers to can also be stored together with the annotation. Furthermore, since ourapproach is based on Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) which is based on XML, it nicely fits into the structure of a Document Object Model (DOM). This allows it to store the annotation together with the annotated document as well as separate.
