This position paper describes Scribblr, a web-based system to support remote, shared annotation of architectural images and plans. The paper describes the current work practice of our clients, a large engineering firm in collaboration with an architect in another country. In particular we are concerned with sketching activities which are important in their work. We describe how, by employing Web-2.0 technologies in the development of Scribblr, we have been able to meet the requirements of a traditional paper-based sketching environment, and indeed to add new capabilities. The paper describes the rationale behind our application of modern Web technologies in this prototype.
