We have been developing a platform that integrates a number of services which let you enrich any IIIF content - it may be your own, hosted on this platform or not, or may be any IIIF content anywhere in the world. Services include: deriving new manifests from existing IIIF resources (for example, taking an images-first approach to describing large unstructured archives), extracting text from images via OCR, automated annotation through machine learning - image analysis, entity recognition, human annotation through crowdsourcing or expert contribution, W3C compliant annotation server, and a IIIF-aware search server that provides both discovery of resources and search within resources. We have built plugins for Omeka S for easy surfacing of multiple-service-enriched IIIF content. Combining these open-standards-based techniques into an integrated platform allows projects of any size to take advantage of the interoperability offered by IIIF through sets of integrated services. And if you don’t have any IIIF yet, the platform will turn your images and AV content into IIIF resources.
