wikiview: a visual exploration of Wikimedia Commons images
Wikiview is a powerful tool that helps you to explore the vast amount of licensed free images from Wikimedia Commons. Anyone can search for images related to a subject and then narrow down the results by adding other search terms. More advanced techniques include a search by color or an uploaded sample image, to kick of the visual exploration. All photos are grouped by similarity and displayed in a visually-sorted 2D image grid. You can zoom in and out to see more similar image or to get a better overview. Dragging the map helps to find related concepts.
Wikiview was started as a student project by Veronika Bertels, Theodor Günther, Franziska Henke, Jakub Müller, Timur Özer and Ole Wendt under the supervision of Prof. Kai Uwe Barthel. The project has been extended by the Visual Computing Group at HTW Berlin and was presented as a demo at the ACM Multimedia conference 2019 in Nice France.
