Bookmark - Tag Galaxy

A 2008 diploma thesis by project by Steven Wood, Tag Galaxy helps you search and view photographs from Flickr by visually representing them as a star with tag planets around it. You start off with an initial tag entered into a text box and then successively narrow down your search by selecting more tags associated with the photograph. Once you're done with tag selection, all photos matching the tags are layered on a 3D sun that can be rotated using your mouse.

For example, an initial tag of "India" resulted in close to 2 million photographs, with 8 other tags shown to narrow it down including Rajasthan, Women, Children & Kerala.

I head about Tag Galaxy from Digital Pro Talk.
