  7. "Webtagging and Webtagging navigation" - presentation by Douglas Russell

    • Demo - name tokenised, matches with tags (blue), extra tags (green), no matches (pink).
      • Don’t reload when images selected, switch to thumbnails etc.
    • Slow to render (E.g. 30 images in dataset)
    • Optimise with efficient hql queries
    • Might need paging etc for larger datasets.
    • Navigation:
      • find tags in intuitive filesystem-like manner
      • offer all tags as a starting point for navigation
      • refine search space by choosing tags
      • count of tagged items is reduced
      • when ‘done’ you can get the list of tagged items
      • standalone app at the moment
      • Performance initially poor - refined
      • Now much better - need to test on larger numbers.
      • Ola - some of these queries / projections could be in BlitzGateway?
      • Douglas - but they are quite customised. Will e-mail details.
      • Ola - could go in main Tags or Search pages of webclient
      • Douglas - think about integrating with other search criteria
      • Will - similar functionality to 3-column layout of other webclient pages
      • Tagsets - add to nav - equivalent of adding all tags from tagset. - Only want tagsets if some images have all tags from tagset.
      • Simon - how to take results from tagging and E.g. use them for searcher etc?
  8. Any other business (<5 mins)
