Abstract: Annotation of existing data is becoming a standard tool in many branches of e-science. Increasingly, databases are being built to receive annotation, and other tools are being developed to annotate existing databases. Annotation is becoming an important part of communication among scientists. In this paper we review various kinds of annotation systems and describe importance of designing databases in such a way that they can receive annotation. This includes designing extensible databases and the need for some form of coordinate system for the attachment of annotations.
