ELAN (EUDICO Linguistic Annotator) is a multimedia annotation tool developed at the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics. ELAN supports linguistic resources that consist of media tracks and separate annotation layers that contain linguistically relevant descriptions of events that occur within the media tracks. The media signal, audio and/or video, is displayed together with annotations. Those annotations can be exactly aligned with media time. Furthermore, ELAN allows for an unlimited numbers of annotation tiers to be defined by the user. This means that users can compose their own tier setup, including the definition of new annotation layer types.
