G-Portal is a georeferenced and geospatial digital library that aims to identify, classify and organize geospatial and georeferenced resources on the web and to provide digital library services for these resources. Annotation service is supported in G-Portal to enable users to contribute content to the digital library. In this paper, we present a resource annotation framework for georeferenced and geospatial digital libraries and discuss its application in G-Portal. The framework is flexible

Meanwhile, other digital library services, such as visualization and classification, can be provided over the annotations since they are treated as first class objects. This paper mainly focuses on the design of the resource annotation framework.
