This paper describes a collaborative workspace tool being developed using SVG and RDF. The approach being taken is to regard all the information in a collaborative workspace as an annotation of the workspace that can be represented as RDF triples. Information for display can then be selected by querying these triples. Audit trails of events in the workspace can be replayed by querying the triples. The approach and the current state of implementation work are described.
