3. Create your own annotation

Composing an annotation on Pundit

To create your own annotations, start by selecting a text fragment that you will use as a Subject: once you select a text a dropdown menu will open up and you can then click Use as subject. The system will open the Dashboard with the Triple Composer and the text you selected will be added as subject. Select now a Predicate among those the system suggests you and click on “Use”. Then search for a relevant Object in controlled vocabularies or from remote data sources (eg DBpedia). Now you only need to save your annotation clicking on the green button “Save annotation”.
