Semantic and semi-structured wiki implementations, which extend traditional, purely string-based wikis by adding machine-processable metadata, suffer from a lack of support for media management.
Currently, it is difficult to maintain semantically rich metadata for both wiki pages and associated media assets; media management functionalities are cumbersome or missing.
With Ylvi, a semantic wiki based on the METIS multimedia framework, we combine the advantages of structured, type-/attribute-based media management and the open, relatively unstructured wiki approach. By representing wiki pages as METIS objects, we can apply sophisticated media management features to the wiki domain and provide an extensible, multimedia-enabled semantic wiki.
