Project Description

This research develops a web-based visual database and catalogue with associated, annotatable explanatory text files, that is suitable for input and access by academics, industry and the general community. The catalogue's information input and search mechanisms will respond to the needs of relevant Humanties desciplines for which image collection and analysis is a critical research tool. Its design aims to encourage user communities to contribute images and text efficiently, effectively and confidently, and guarantees the security of their images through application of a tag system. The collaboratively authoured image catalogue would facilitate national and international research projects using visual resources/
