ABSTRACT The progress and the continuous evolution of computer capacities, as well as the emergence of the X3D standard have recently boosted the 3D domain. Associating some semantics with 3D contents becomes a major issue specially for reusing such contents or pieces of content after having extracted them from existing 3D scenes. In this paper, we address this issue by proposing a generic semantic annotation model for 3D, called 3DSEAM (3D semantics annotation model). 3DSEAM aims at indexing 3D contents considering visual, geometric and semantic aspects. 3DSEAM is instantiated using MPEG 7 that we have extended with 3D specific locators. These locators link some visual, geometric and semantic features to the corresponding X3D fragments. These features can then be used for indexing and querying.

    • "Regarding 3D representations' annotations, information is attached to parts of the 3D representation i.e. points [9], segments, surfaces [10] or objects [11]. Different standards can be used in order to support the annotation ([12] [13]). "

    • "AnnoCryst [6] enables users to annotate 3D crystallography models (CIF, MOL files) through a JMOL viewer and store the annotations on a shared Web server. 3DSEAM is designed to enable 3D scenes represented using the Extensible 3D (X3D) standard to be annotated using MPEG-7 [7]. All of these systems enable users to attach annotations to 3D models and to browse annotations added by others, asynchronously. "

    ABSTRACT: Many cultural heritage organizations responsible for providing access to large online collections recognize the potential value that social tagging systems can add to their collections. Projects such as Steve.Museum aim to give online users a voice in describing the content of publicly-held collections of digital heritage, through online social tagging and annotation tools. However, there are a number of unresolved challenges associated with re-using community tags, aggregating them within the museum's authoritative metadata stores and incorporating them within museum "metasearch" services. Although social tagging sites provide simple, user-relevant tags, there are issues associated with the quality of the metadata, the scalability compared with conventional indexing systems and a lack of interoperability across social tagging and annotation systems. In this paper, we propose an integrated system that overcomes many of the limitations of social tagging systems and maximizes their potential value-add within the context of museum collections. The Harvesting and Aggregating Networked Annotations (HarvANA) system firstly enables communities to attach tags/annotations to digitized 3D museum artefacts through web-based annotation services. The annotations/tags are represented using a standardized but extensible Resource Description Framework (RDF) model and an ontology-directed folksonomy. This approach facilitates interoperability between tags/annotations. Secondly, the system uses the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH) API to automatically harvest the annotations/tags from distributed community servers. The harvested annotations are aggregated with the authoritative museum metadata in a centralized metadata store. The HarvANA system provides a streamlined, interoperable, scalable approach that enables cultural organizations to leverage community enthusiasm for tagging and annotation, augment their institutional metadata with community tags and enhance their discovery and browse services over 3D models.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a temporal meta database for three-dimensional (3D) objects whose properties and relationships are supported by valid time is introduced. Based on our proposed temporal object-oriented conceptual schema model, a conceptual schema of the temporal meta database can be generated from a 3D graphical data source and other particular application requirements. Based on our proposed temporal object relational data model with attribute timestamping, logical schemas of the temporal meta database can be systematically and automatically generated from the conceptual schema. From the temporal meta database, non-temporal/temporal metadata about temporal 3D objects are available for temporal information system users. Convenient access using database languages such as SQL can be performed. Queries over 3D objects using a temporal object relational SQL are demonstrated.
