Abstract

This paper deals with an annotation-based decisional system. The decisional system we present is based on multidimensional databases, which are composed of facts and dimensions. The expertise of decision-makers is modelled, shared and stored through annotations. These annotations allow decision-makers to make an active reading and to collaborate with other decision-makers about a common analysis project.
