Another Flickr Tool: Tagnautica

Oh well. I've just made another widget for Flickr only to discover that someone else has already built something very similar more than half a year ago. I better mention this before anyone thinks that I've borrowed the idea - I really haven't seen the Flickr Related Tag Browser by Airtight until five minutes ago so the similarities are totally coincidental. Actually - if you want a great usable tool you don't need to read any further.

Because Tagnautica is a rather experimental navigation tool to explore the Flickr related tags space. The fisheye pearl chain interface has been lying in one of my folders for quite a while (4 years actually) and I found this a good opportunity to use it. I think it is quite entertaining to play around with it. But see yourself.

Noice work Mario, particularly the fisheye pearl chain interface, lots of fun for the whole family...

It's a shame that, as far as I know, flickr doesn't handle to join tags to refine the search like del.icio.us does.

This is beautiful. I love Airtight's browser as well, though yours did not strike me as derivative. Nice work, thanks.

Mario, this is incredible! I completed a similar design for a favorites viewer over at Etsy (click my name to see the link). The similarities are uncanny. We must have been developing the same night. Nice work! ;)
