  1. Well, I have to admit, this search engine is interesting. I like the photos as I have spent a lot of time, on and off, around the World Trade Center, though much less after 9/11.

    I wonder how this search engine works – does it use the tagging and metadata in the source code?

  2. In answer to how Tiltomo works?… Our Visual Search calculates separately both Color & Texture in varying amounts to determine what we call “Visually Similar”. “Visually Similar” can be very subjective. For this reason we have two Visual Search modes. The first is “100% Color / Texture”; this matches images that are “similar” in terms of only Color / Texture. Our second mode “Theme” uses Color / Texture and also takes Visual Context into consideration. This mode is most likely to match images that have a Visual / Contextual relationship.

    Soon we will add a slider that allows the user to change the balance between Color / Texture & Context.

  3. Maybe Cortina would be cool too, if it returned any results at all.

    I received this message 3 consecutive times from Cortina searches:
    “Results 0 to 12 of about 0 Search took 0.041 seconds”
