1.2.2. Document Page Image Interaction

The screenshot shown below is a typical view of what the detailed document page description looks like. This particular view can be obtained by selecting the 'Tobacco800' dataset through the 'Browse Data' link in the left navigation panel, by selecting its 'a' subset, scrolling to the bottom and clicking on the thumbnail image of 'azb11c00.tif'. It can also be accessed directly at this URL.

The displayed navigation panel is composed of different parts, some of which are shared with all detailed description pages (e.g. for document sets or page elements), others are specific to document page images.

General Information and Features

The upper part of the navigation window shows the dataset name, the user who submitted it (if known) and the overall rating this dataset has received from users.

The lower part of the window (not shown in the screenshot) displays all registered individual comments or ratings.

General Interaction

General interaction with the currently selected item goes through the icons of the available toolbar. According to the context, the toolbar looks like this (individual icons can be deactivated):


It offers the following features:

  • Download selected data
  • Copy selected data to personal storage ('My Uploads')
  • Run algorithm (currently under heavy overhaul)
  • Tag
  • Find embedding data item
  • Flag as inappropriate
  • Create annotation
  • Like
  • View annotations

Specific Document Page Image Interaction

The most interesting interactions with document page images comes from the creating and viewing annotations.

Viewing Annotations

All annotations relative to parts of the document page image can be visualized (or hidden) by clicking on the corresponding icon (the looking glass). This will open a menu pane on the right side of the viewing area, containing all annotated regions in the image. While in the above depicted example the list is only containing two items, it can become quite large (cf. this example, for instance).

The menu pane containing all regions is structured and is dynamic: it can be totally or partially collapsed to improve readability and navigation. Annotated regions are grouped by their type. Selecting the type name will expand or collapse corresponding regions. Selecting an individual region will redirect to the detailed page elements description page.
