You may remember a few months ago I highlighted some cool information visualisations, many of which tapped into the Flickr API to do some cool things with photos etc. Since then a fair few more have appeared so I thought I might post a few screenshots and links here of the best:
“This application represents the relationship between words and colors using all the images from the Color Fields group in Flickr. Key factors are the homogeneity between the colors of all the images registered to the tag, the attributes of the average of these colors and of course the popularity of the tag.”
“Using images from the Color Fields group on Flickr, Jim has created a beautiful and efficient Experimental Color Picker. Just click on a color, use the slider to adjust lightness and darkness, and it will show you photos with that color.”
“This application lets you browse Flickr’s huge image database, by searching for tags (keywords). Flickr Postcard Browser uses the real world metaphor of a set of postcards shuffled onto a surface.”
It really is fascinating (to me anyway!) to see all the creative and ingenious ways in which people are utilising the data contained within such databases. Check out the previous post for more and, as ever, if you know of any other cools ones – let me know!
