Adding Entity Types

  1. From the Ontology panel click "+ Add an entity type".Entity_type_selection.png

  5. If no Classification is required click "Done". If a Classification is required continue to step 6.
  6. To add a new Classification click "+ Add a new classification".Add_a_classification.png
  7. The "Adding Classification panel will pop-out.Adding_Classification_panel.png
  8. In the "Basic Info" section designate a "Name" and "Description" for the Classification respectively. Classification_Name.png
  9. Use the "Type" select box to select between Single Selections, Multiple Selection, or Text Input.Classification_Type.png
  10. In the "Values" section select whether or not the Classification has a default value. (Note: Utilizing default value can increase task efficiency but may introduce annotator bias.)Default_Value.png
  11. In the "Values" section the first Classifcation is created with the default value name "Value 1". Click "Rename" to rename this value to something appropriate for your project.Default_Value_1.png
  12. To add additional Values click "+ Add new value" and rename the default value name to something appropriate for your project.Add_new_value.png
  13. Using this same process add as many values as is required for your project. When you have added all required value click "Done".Done.png

Adding Entity Type Associations

(Note: At least two Entity Types must exist before you can create an Entity Type Association)

  1. Click "+ Add an association" to the right or below "Entity Type Associations".Add_Association.png
  2. The "Adding Entity Type Association" pop-up panel will appear.Adding_Association_panel.png
  3. In the "Basic Info' section designate a Name and Description appropriate for your Entity Type Association.Association_Name_and_Description.png
  4. In the "Connections" section use the pull-down field to select the entity type that is the source of the association. Connection.png
  5. In the "Target" section click "+ Add an entity type". Target_add_entity_type.png
  6. Select the appropriate Target from the pull-down list for your Entity Type Association. Target_Selection.png
