Image Markup Language is an extensible markup language (XML) schema used to describe both image metadata and annotations. It describes both data pertaining to an entire image, and data that are tied to specific regions or features of the image. Developed for a specific domain in Medical Education, this paper describes extensions to take advantage of the Dublin Core metadata standard, and of an XML schema for vector graphics representation. We have developed a prototype system of open source tools implementing an authoring system, a client system, and an image annotation database which can be queried though the Web.
