Review of some posts in 2022

Today, we want to take a brief look back at the year 2022 in the prometheus image archive. It was a year we started off with the integration of a first version of the image similarity search.

New filters for your search results in the advanced search followed.
With the Advanced search with dating filter it is possible to sort data sets by specific time periods and with „Filter by objects“ you get objects only displayed.

New image databases could also be integrated, like the HeidICON image pool „HeidICON – Kurpfälzisches Museum“, the inventory „Bestand Kölner Museen“ of the Rheinisches Bildarchiv Köln and the museum database „Sammlungen Online Albertina“.

In coordination with the DigiROM-Project, we have decided to hide the display of Discriminating terms in the image archive at first level in the form of clickable asterisks and to display a notice.
With the Translations of technical terms the indexed English dictionary has been added and we are happy to record and add further references to missing terms to make your search easier.

In the detailed view of the images in the archive, you now also get a visual idea of ​​the dimensions of the works
and you can add the corresponding Wikidata ID to the artist fields, to then search immediately for it in prometheus.

Outside of prometheus, on our YouTube channel, we have listed music videos in a playlist called Music videos about art.
In the year to come, we will continue to add new functions and will be able to integrate additional image databases. There is already a lot waiting. :-)
