Tag Galaxy

Tag Galaxy | Contemporary Learning | Scoop.it

Visual representations of data are nothing new, but Tag Galaxy takes it to new heights in searching Flickr photos. Enter a single keyword (I used "frog") and you'll see a 3D representation of a solar system with the keyword as the sun, orbited by related word "planets" (e.g., "amphibian," "green," and "toad"). Click a planet to combine keywords, or just click the sun (your main keyword) to get a unique photo-sphere covered with up to 236 images pulled from Flickr. Spin it in any direction with the mouse, clicking shots for close-ups. It takes a while to surf them all this way, but makes for a fascinating time waster.
