UseCase Tagging

(back to UseCases)

implemented by using TaggingApi, TaggingPluginThunderbird, and PimOntology

for all use cases we use only applications listed in UseCaseApplications


User has a PIMO, PIMO is filled with a view things. The resource to be annotated is identified by a uri. Options: the tag already exists or not, the resource is already stored in the resource-storage or not.


The resource is tagged as being an occurrence of the thing. Thing and occurrence-triple are stored in pimo, resource is stored in resource-storage (if not already).


User presses button "tag" in the application.


Paul tags a document as being an occurrence of the ESWC2006

  • User opens application, selects a resource. - resource "Document about ESWC2006"
  • user presses "tag" button
  • looks somehow like this:

  • A text-edit comes, user can enter the letters "ESW..."
  • system guesses the rest of the word and shows possible tags
  • If tag exists:
    • user selects it
    • press ok - the resource is connected to the tag
  • If tag does not exist:
    • user has to enter whole tag: ESWC2006
    • System creates new tag in PIMO, with uri being created as paul:ESWC2006
    • System gives paul:ESWC2006 the class pimo:Topic
    • tag is connected to uri
  • User interface shows the tag next to the document


  • the document is not yet in the resource-store: the application or gnowsis has to store the document's uri, fulltext, type, and label. then link the uri.
    • or the application has to ping aperture to re-crawl (maybe just this?) and it will appear?
  • The user selects more than one resource, either multi select, or a folder of emails, f.x. ?
