ISIS 2.0! For when text search is just not cutting it...

By Alex Dolski on February 26, 2009 11:18 AM | Permalink
The Libraries are pleased to announce the next major release of ISIS, our visual/spatial map search application that stands for Interactive Spatial Image Search. This is a "2.0" release featuring an improved control panel, redesigned back-end code, and a new persistence layer that allows you to choose between MySQL, PostgreSQL, or XML file data stores.

What's more, our own deployment of ISIS is now capable of searching across the entire digitized map collection of the Henderson Public Library - nine whole maps! (They are catching up to us!)

ISIS currently works only with CONTENTdm map collections, but it is not limited to CONTENTdm customers. Anybody with a PHP web server can install it and hook it up to any publicly accessible CONTENTdm map collection - or multiple collections.

Other projects involving ISIS and our map collections are in the pipeline, and news will be posted here first.
