Cool Tools Episode 46 Screencast: Tag Galaxy

Created in 2008 by Steven Wood using Papervision3D and the Flickr API, Tag Galaxy is a web tool that takes advantage of the tagging community in Flickr and sorts those saved images based on their tags. This tool provides a visually appealing and easy way to search for and display a wide variety of images saved in Flickr. This screencast presents a quick tour of the tool along with some ways to use it in a school library. For more information, visit the website at
