This document describes a program that builds a set of Web pages that index a collection of bird photos. See these related documents for other pieces of this system:
An XML-based image cataloging system. Start here with an explanation of the basic requirements for the system, and the format of the XML catalog of images.
archx: A program to index a photo
This document explains how scans are organized into CD-sized
directories, and provides a program to build XML-based
indices of the contents of each directory. It also reduces
each image to a standard thumbnail size and places the
thumbnails in a separate directory.
xnomo3: A system for representing bird taxonomy. Because it is customary to organize bird records in phylogenetic order, this system slots birds into biological classifications.
Once images are cataloged, scanned, and placed into archive directories, the catweb script builds a set of web pages that list all images according to what kinds of birds are found in each image, with thumbnail images.
