A digital artwork expression language (DAEL)
Smith, Robert, Pham, Binh L., & Choudhury, Sharmin (2007) A digital artwork expression language (DAEL). In Internet and Multimedia Systems and Applications, August 20 – 22, 2007, Honolulu, Hawaii, USA.
To provide effective representation, search and retrieval of digital artworks, their semantics, context and symbolism should be considered. Existing metadata schemas were designed for other specific purposes and are too cumbersome to be modified to express these abstract concepts of digital artworks. We have designed a new metadata wrapper schema suitable for digital artworks and a Digital Artwork Expression Language (DAEL) based on this schema. This paper focuses on the requirements and features of DAEL, and how it can be used to express basic metadata as well as to generate more complex and abstract metadata via a Transformation Engine. A use case is presented to illustrate the usefulness of this language.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
