Flickr Lens – PicTags

Noah Brier created catnip for marketers with brand tags.

I won’t cover it here – because since he launched it on May 8th it has received over 720,000 tags and 423,343 blog posts (OK, I made that last one up).

Last night on Twitter I stumbled across a similar idea for Flickr – hat tip to @whorleygirl. It’s called Tag Galaxy and it searches for all Flickr images with the specified tag and shows related tags – the cool thing is the visualization which presents the tag clouds as planets in a galaxy.

Visualization of unstructured data is a fascinating subject – and well done here.
