Abstract

A growing amount of multimedia data is produced, processed and stored digitally by Destination Management Organizations (DMO). Therefore, the current main challenge is to index this data in order to make it searchable and reusable. This requires the multimedia content to be annotated in order to create metadata which contains a concise and compact description of the features of the content. Metadata descriptions may vary considerably in terms of comprehensiveness or granularity depending on the tools used. In this paper, we present a new metadata description annotation tool for handling tourist multimedia content based on existing standards. In order to illustrate the performance of the ZERBITUR annotation tool, we designed a prototype and tested it on a relatively small database.
