Abstract

Currently, there are several ways of describing and referring to images in RDF. This ambiguity results in a proliferation of vocabularies for image descriptions, complicating the cross-community data integration of information related to digital images. In addition, there are no standardized guidelines on how to integrate RDF data into the image metadata. Therefore, the JPEG standardization committee has recently initiated some activities to streamline the integration of images in the cloud of Linked Data. One effort is the standardization of an ontology for describing digital images. JPEG aims at providing a technology that enables the uniform description of photos and videos with technical, administrative and semantic metadata compliant with the RDF specification and the principles of Linked Data. Secondly, specifications to integrate RDF data into JPEG images are elaborated. Finally, since descriptions often only apply to a certain part of an image, a last effort is to formalize the specification of regions of interest. In this paper, members of the JPEG committee provide a detailed overview of these ongoing activities.
