The get-illustration web service

Blog Post, by Lars Marius Garshol

The post is about a tm-based tool that connects photos and information about people.

I’m working on a site that lists the various Topic Maps-related software that’s out there, in an effort to make all the tools that have been released more visible. The site in question is, of course, Topic Maps-driven, and so it has, of course, topic pages for the people who created the tools. Those pages inevitably become pretty boring, because the tools site isn’t the place to collect lots and lots of information about people.

But then it struck me: I have photos of nearly all of these people in tmphoto. Why not use those photos? And Ontopedia has PSIs for most of the people, so why not do this properly and use the PSIs to integrate the two? In fact, since there are going to be other portals with Topic Maps-related content out there, why not offer this as a generalized web service?

I like the easy but powerful way of merging Topic Maps to extend and combine existing knowledge bases. Thus I see high potential in distributed environments where peer to peer solutions may open the gates to the real Web 3.0.
