Semantic annotation has been used to combine varied information sources – gathered as unobtrusively as possible – and produce enhanced tools for working with digital resources. In this paper we describe trials carried out using a location tracking system and Semantic Web annotation technologies to analyse activities in a simulated ward environment. The motivation for semantic annotation of the space will be outlined along with the practicalities of the location based tracking system. The integration of location, annotations and video information will be discussed together with the technologies and approaches applicability to use in a real ward environment
