European researchers have developed software that will help users organise, search and navigate digital images collections. The IMAGINATION ('Image-based navigation in multimedia archives') project, funded under the Information Society Technologies (IST) Thematic area of the EU's Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), sought to bring digital cultural and scientific resources closer to their users, effectively making it easier for them to obtain important information about images and image parts. Financing for IMAGINATION totalled more than EUR 2.10 million.
