Your Paintings Tagger
Tagger, part of the BBC Your Paintings, is a revolutionary, state-of-the-art crowd-sourcing application that allows people to tag and classify paintings, helping to create a multi-faceted access to the extraordinary Your Paintings resource. Different audiences, from school children to scholars and people who are simply passionate about art, are having fun spotting and tagging details of paintings, thus helping others find art that is relevant to them, on any platform from computers to tablets and mobile phones. For the project, Keepthinking have created a new, entirely web-based Collection Management Software (Qi, which is generally available to license and already in use by the British Council and others) that allows the PCF to control the entire collection and that populates the BBC website. We have also designed and developed the Tagger concept and interface, which integrates with Wikipedia, ULAN (Getty) and The Oxford Dictionary.
