Invisque

Invisque stands for INteractive VIsual Search and QUery Environment. It is a tool for searching, querying, and hypothesising about large data sets. Analysts can view meta-data about an item (documents, images, videos, etc.) as an index card, and can sort and filter clusters of index cards using intuitive gestures. I developed the user interface in ActionScript and Flash, and my colleague, Tinni Choudhury, developed the data connectivity and middle-ware. The two components communicated using XML over a JSP hosted on Tomcat. The original concept was conceived by William Wong, and Neesha Kodagoda and Simon Attfield have also contributed to the system design.
