This annotator encodes MetaMap named entities in a format utilizable by UIMA components. The annotator is based on the MetaMap UIMA Wrapper (http://sourceforge.net/projects/metamap-uima/) authored by Kai Schlamp.
Please Note: The MetaMap UIMA Annotator requires that you download and install a local version of MetaMap and the MetaMap Java API.
It is assumed the user has adequate knowledge of Java software development and the Apache UIMA Framework in particular. Knowledge pertaining to using the UIMA framework with the Eclipse Integrated Development Environment is useful, but not required.
