The MEKETREpository - Middle Kingdom Tomb and Artwork Descriptions on the Web
The MEKETREpository (MR) allows scholars to collect and publish artwork descriptions from Egypt’s Middle Kingdom (MK) period on the Web. Collaboratively developed vocabularies can be used for the semantic classification and annotation of uploaded media. This allows all users with system access to contribute their knowledge about the published artworks. All data, including annotations and vocabularies, are published as Linked Data and can be accessed and reused by others. This paper gives an overview of MR’s functionalities and the current state of our work.
