Factsheet

FRACS is a repository of annotations that facilitates the creation, storage, retrieval, manipulation and distribution of annotation sets on corpora of documents. FRACS conforms to the FAIR principles, allowing the discovery, accessibility, interoperability and reuse of your research data. FRACS is part of the Canadian National Data Services Framework initiative.

FRACS is a multi-faceted project. It can be used:

FRACS modules

FRACS is offered as interoperable modules ready to be deployed and instantiated individually or as a whole:

The RACS storage module was developed by CRIM as part of the Adnotare project, to store the data generated by the PACTE text annotation platform. As part of the FRACS project, RACS will be enhanced to meet the needs of other research disciplines and complemented by a rights management module (UsAc), a binary archive storage module (FSS) and a metadata catalogue (Catá).
