This release focuses on the visualization of repositories and search results in Emir. Alt + mouse wheel now changes size of thumbnails in the visualization and the movement within the visualization has been fixed. It further includes library updates and a new demo mode (endless loop of iterative arrangement in visualization) in Emir.
The new release can be downloaded at sourceforge:
The demo session on the 77th MPEG Meeting was quite a success, many people were interested in the visualization. Many talks about standardisation, surveillance and other things where visual analysis could be needed took place at the demo desk. After the demo session I was asked to record a video of the visualization of Emir. Well that was easy. I’ve published the video here, optional download here. >> Watch the video
A workshop on the history of informatics takes place in April 2007 in Klagenfurt Austria. The workshop is organized by the ITEC institute of the Klagenfurt University and the Austrian Computer Society. The full CfP is available at the website: http://www-itec.uni-klu.ac.at/medichi2007/Home/.
I’m proud to announe that Emir will be demonstrated at the 77th MPEG Meeting in Klagenfurt on Monday, 17th of July. I will show the visualization capabilities of Emir in detail, especially the MDS (multidimensional scaling) part. Meet me there with my Notebook, if you miss it: Photos will be posted on Flickr.
