EdTech Tool Uses:Tag Galaxy is a clever visualisation tool that allows you to search the tags (keywords) associated with Flickr ( and displays the results using a 'solar system' model: the images associated with the main tag are displayed at the centre of the solar system (as a 'sun') with related tags orbiting around it as planets and satellites, etc. You can see a thumbnail of all the images associated with the main tag and view them in more detail by clicking on 'the sun', or click on any of the related tag 'planets' to make that the focus of attention (which moves that to the centre of the solar system and in turn shows other related tags orbiting around that). A very clever search and visualisation tool for Flickr images and their tags.
