CATEGORY: Overview

VIZdex is a new way to find, enjoy, mark, and share related web multimedia content in a common environment.  It is a BIG project spanning several big concepts, so best to begin with basics:

 

 VIZdex accepts defined data sources, including RSS feeds

  • blog
  • podcast
  • videocast
  • API

VIZdex parses XML and loads the database

  • attempts to normalize data
    • blogs typically contain text (part or all of the blog itself) and an optional image file reference
    • podcasts typically contain text (show notes) and an audio file reference (link to mp3, m4a, stream)
    • videocasts typically contain text and a video file reference (link to mp4, m4v,stream)
    • APIs can involve anything, including transfer of XML and/or JSON data files(large and small)
  • categorization and indexing
  • continual updates
  • owned/private data segregation

VIZdex handles a wide range of web media types

  • text
  • image
  • audio
  • video
  • data visualizations (timelines, networks, and charts)

VIZdex presents media in our unique web player

  • single environment for enjoying related media
  • easily accessible, no app to download or install
  • integrated annotation and sharing

VIZdex builds connections between web media items

  • people want to easily navigate between related events, people, more
  • some connections are common; others, we attempt a new slant on data presentation
  • key is maintaining a unified environment; providing a tool that traverses disparate data in a logical way

It depends... how technical are you? 

How technical are most people?

For that matter, how technical do you need to be to function in today's world?
