HyperImage is a research environment that realizes footnotes for images, image details, image collections and texts and refers to any data through hypertextual links. The project was developed in collaboration with the Leuphana University of Lüneburg. Until 2015, it was funded as part of the Hybrid Publishing Labs.
HyperImage utilizes the principle of footnotes which is often applied to texts, for images. This allows users to precisely mark, describe and link an arbitrary number of details within an image. Annotations of the corpus can be embedded, linked among each other and accessed via indices. The use of HyperImage should minimize complex work, because details of images do not have to be localized as usual.
