The METS Structural Map includes <fptr> tags.
The <fptr> tag points to a file or to a point or segment in a file:
<area FILEID="FILE001" BEGIN="FHBG" END="FHND" BETYPE="IDREF" />
<area FILEID="FILE002" BEGIN="00:01:48"END="00:06:17" BETYPE="TIME" />
In DigiTool, and perhaps other digital asset management systems (DAMs), one can use the <area> tag inside <fptr>.
Is this possible in Rosetta?
Use the <area> tag inside the <fptr> tag in Rosetta to link to the ALTO zones as follows:
<mets:div ID="ART_0005_0042" ORDER="41" TYPE="NORMAL_TEXT">
<mets:div TYPE="FILE" LABEL="">
<mets:area BEGIN="TextBlock10" BETYPE="IDREF" FILEID="FL743517"/>
NOTE: It may also be necessary to adjust the order of the attributes in the <area> tag so that Rosetta can ingest the logical structural maps.
If the <area> tags are for non-Rosetta viewers, they can be used within a structMap that is not "PHYSICAL" or "LOGICAL".
The PHYSICAL/LOGICAL structMap types used by Rosetta viewers don't support <area> tags.
However, other structMap types that are not validated by Rosetta can be used for that purpose.
Example use case: to structure scanned books METS files.
