Mirador annotation functionality - can annotations be seen by others?

Hi, I’m looking for a module where users can annotate right on an image (draw a spot on it and add text), but they need to be able to see each other’s annotations. Is Mirador able to do this? At first glance, I thought that maybe annotations were only stored in the local browser so only the author of those annotations could see their own…is that true or can the annotations be saved for others to see?

Is there anyone out there who successfully used Mirador for annotations and would like to share a link to their project??


Currently, annotations require an external server to be seen anywhere. The module Annotate will be upgraded to support it, but it will be in some weeks or for the end of the year.

Hi, @Daniel_KM,

is there any news yet about progress with implementing the “annotation protocol” you mention above? I’ am surely anxious to test it…

By the way, I just tried to install v3.3.3.7 of Annotate, and it failed. It appears there is a small bug in one of the latest commits in Generic/InstallResources.php.
See the issue I raised in Gitlab.

greetings, John

Thanks, it is fixed. About annotation, I don’t understand why mirador requires a specific connector for each annotation server, since this is a protocol. So a connector should be written for the module Annotate too. Probably using the default connector and changing its name should be nearly enough.

Looking forward to this feature
