The visitor gets to view images related to the topic from open repositories. She can open the image in the local image viewer or the original location. She can remove images that are not related to the topic, but then she must provide a reason, which will add info to the image. She can add the image to a collection, edit the metadata, identify people, places and time in an image. An image with activity is registered in the database and made available for upload to Wikimedia Commons.

Images displayed are generally considered Free Cultural Works. It may be possible to display images with Creative Commons ND or NC restrictions, but they can not be enriched or used in any way.

Images module is different from the Gallery module, as the Images module focuses on single images, whereas galleries contain items.

Displaying the images

  • The result set is displayed in a tiled view. Use the Ajapaik grid code?
  • Two rows of images are displayed and more can be viewed (by scrolling horizontally or by clicking for more).
  • The space can be expanded by opening in a separate window.
  • Display rephoto and original as a pair.
  • Add your image through the Images section
  • Classifications will be accessible as facets. They could also be displayed as subsections.
    • Images by x, Depicts x etc

Facet and sort

Images can be filtered based on their properties. Initially everything is selected. Selections filter out content. UI for selecting has not been fully developed. Unselected may be dimmed or selected may be highlighted. Reset by section may be needed. Number of images by facet is needed. Sorting uses the same controls, and is attached to only a few properties. Sorting by location means sorting by distance. Sorting by several criteria has not been defined. Arkistokuvia header facet.png

The result set can be faceted and sorted.
