At the DHd Conference 2018 our junior research team organized a workshop on image repositories entitled “image repositories – real work support or time consuming?”. The workshop started with a round table discussion with experts from the leading German image repositories,
Deutsche Fotothek, Prometheus and UB Heidelberg. After that, the participants were invited to test the already existing repositories and their usability as well as share their experiences within the workshop. During the final part, we introduced our prototype that allows a geospatial search within large scale image repositories. About 20 participants tested the program and provided valuable feedback on the current version.
