Roadmap from ESEPaths to EDMPaths

Roadmap from ESEPaths to EDMPaths: a note on representing annotations resulting from automatic enrichment

Aitor Soroa, Eneko Agirre, Arantxa Otegi and Antoine Isaac

This document is a case study on using the Europeana Data Model (EDM) for representing annotations of Cultural Heritage Objects (CHO). One of the main goals of the PATHS project is to augment CHOs (items) with information that will enrich the user’s experience. The additional information includes links between items in cultural collections and from items to external sources like Wikipedia.  The PATHS project started in 2011, and it adopted the representation schema of choice then, ESE3. We extended it extended to a format called ESEPaths to represent the enrichment information. In this document we describe a proposal for representing PATHS enrichments following EDM (Europeana Data Model), the new data model used by Europeana.
