Abstract:The creation of large, richly annotated, multimodal
corpora of human interactions is an expensive and time
consuming task. Support from annotation tools that make
the annotation process more efficient is required,
especially if the annotation effort involves really large
amounts of data. Therefore we investigated how different
properties of specific annotation tasks can have an impact
on the design of a tool focused on that general class of
tasks. In this paper we present our view on the
considerations that should drive the design of new tools
geared to specific tasks. The main dimensions that we
consider are: observation vs interpretation, explicit and
implicit input layers, segmentation, feedback, constraints,
relations and the content of the annotation elements.
