An Exploratory Study of Tag-based Visual Interfaces for Searching Folksonomies

Javier Diaz, Keyun Hu, Melanie Tory
2009 unpublished
This paper reports on an exploratory study of individuals engaging with five different image and video search interfaces.  ...  Our findings suggest that search interfaces should maximize screen space used for visual representations of the media, provide on-demand access to titles, tags, and other metadata, and provide contextual  ...  Interfaces Five interactive web-based interfaces for folksonomies were chosen for our study.  ...

Pragmatic evaluation of folksonomies

Denis Helic, Markus Strohmaier, Christoph Trattner, Markus Muhr, Kristina Lerman
2011 Proceedings of the 20th international conference on World wide web - WWW '11  
We model exploratory navigation of a tagging system as decentralized search on a network of tags.  ...  While the promises and pitfalls of the latter have been studied to some extent, we know very little about the extent to which folksonomies are pragmatically useful for navigating social tagging systems  ...  The visualizations include the top four folksonomy levels of the Delicious dataset.  ...

Tag and Word Clouds as Means of Navigation Support in Social Systems [chapter]

Martin Leginus, Peter Dolog
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Tag cloud is a visual interface that summarizes an underlying data by depicting the most frequent terms (also called as tags) from the dataset.  ...  Improved diversity and novelty of tag clouds should result into coverage of the entire spectrum of topics from folksonomy resources.  ...  Hence, tag clouds are suitable for exploratory retrieval tasks (when user is not completely aware what he/she is looking for) and serve as a starting point for further more specific keyword-based search  ...

A Study on User-Controllable Social Exploratory Search

Cecilia di Sciascio, Peter Brusilovsky, Eduardo Veas
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 Conference on Human Information Interaction&Retrieval - IUI '18  
This paper presents an interface that integrates social search functionality into an exploratory search system in a user-controlled way that is consistent with the nature of exploratory search.  ...  The interface incorporates control features that allow the user to (i) express information needs by selecting keywords and (ii) to express preferences for incorporating social wisdom based on tag matching  ...  Yet, almost all work on collaborative exploratory search focuses on explicit synchronous collaboration context [32, 41] , with almost no studies of exploratory search interfaces based on "implicit collaboration  ...

Evaluation of Folksonomy Induction Algorithms

Markus Strohmaier, Denis Helic, Dominik Benz, Christian Körner, Roman Kern
2012 ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems and Technology  
In this paper, we report results from a broad comparative study of state-of-the-art folksonomy induction algorithms that we have applied and evaluated in the context of five social tagging systems.  ...  In social tagging systems, the output of these algorithms is usually referred to as folksonomies (from folk-generated taxonomies).  ...  Acknowledgements: This work is in part supported by an Austrian Science Agency grant (FWF P20269).  ...

2022 DESIDOC Journal of Library & Information Technology  
The information retrieval system contains either a list of subject terms (taxonomy) or a list of collaborative tags (folksonomy) or both.  ...  These 2642 terms of folksonomy and taxonomy both terms are taken as data for this research work. The EDA has been performed with the attributes in the dataset.  ...  Suppose, a library has built an Institutional Digital Repository which does not visualize the tag cloud in the interface, and tags become a big volume of terms.  ...
