Annotating Things using the PIMO Thing Editor

Prerequisite:

  • You have gnowsis installed and running (see installation step-by-step tutorial in gnowsis-doc)
  • You are willing to spend some time using the semantic Desktop

Procedure:

If you haven't done so yet, you should create the thing you want to annotade. This can be done using the Kaukolu Wiki (see Wiki walkthrough) or using the Miniquire. To edit your PIMO you can use the few buttons on above the PIMO tree structure.

They are (from left to right):

  • filter tree for instances or classes
  • minimize tree
  • expand tree
  • add class
  • add thing
  • reload PIMO tree
  • delete class/thing

After you did so, your Miniquire should look something like this:

Now the annotation can start: double click the thing you want to annotate. The PIMO Thing Editor should pop up.

There are two ways to state, that the current Thing Leo Sauermann "knows" Dominik Heim:

1) Drag 'n' Drop

Drag the Thing "Dominik Heim" from Miniquire to the right side of the PIMO Thing Editor that is called relation panel (because it shows all the relations) and drop it in there.

Now that "Dominik Heim" is shown you only neet to name the relation. You can choose one of the default relations or you can enter whatever you want the relation to be called. In this case we will name it "knows". After clicking on the "add" button, the annotation is made and it is shown directly. The inverse relation that "Dominik Heim" (inverse of) knows "Leo Sauermann" is done simultaneously. If you detect a typo you can fix it double clicking the predicate and rename it.

2) Filter it out

Enter the name of the thing / resource you want to link with Leo Sauermann in the seach field on the bottom of the relation panel. After you started typing, The Gnowsis will propose several things / resources thay may fit your search.

Now that "Dominik Heim" is shown you only neet to name the relation. You can choose one of the default relations or you can enter whatever you want the relation to be called. In this case we will name it "knows".

[HINT: If you are linking a resource there's only the possibility of addOccurrence]

After clicking on the "add" button, the annotation is made and it is shown directly. The inverse relation that "Dominik Heim" (inverse of) knows "Leo Sauermann" is done simultaneously. If you detect a typo you can fix it double clicking the predicate and rename it.
