The GIFT comes with a tool which lets you index whole directory trees containing images in one go. You then can use the GIFT server and its client, to browse your own image collections.
The GIFT is an open framework. The developers explicitly have taken into account the possibility of adding new ways of querying to the framework. The communication protocol for client-server communication, MRML, is XML based and fully documented (http://www.mrml.net). This aims at promoting code reuse among researchers and application developers.
The current version of the GIFT can be seen in action at http://viper.unige.ch/demo/
The GIFT (ex Viper) is the result of a research effort at the Vision Group at the CUI (computer science center) of the University of Geneva (see http://vision.unige.ch/). This cutting-edge research has been the subject of several publications and conference talks. Details can be found at http://viper.unige.ch/.
To avoid a name clash with the "gift" package (a fasttrack filesharing client), these packages have been named "gnuift" (also to stress that gnuift is a GNU project).

gnuift and libmrml for Debian ----------------------------- GIFT is quite a beast. You should install gnuift-doc and read /usr/share/doc/gnuift-doc/configuring-and-hacking-the-gift.dvi.gz and /usr/share/doc/gnuift-doc/gift-guide.dvi.gz The PHP client ist included as an example in /usr/share/doc/gnuift/examples it works right out of the box. So in short you could do the following: * mkdir gif more»
0.1.11 Unfortunately I have tested uploading to savannah using a faulty 0.1.10. As removing files from savannah is not possible, overwriting neither (apparently), I bump the version number to 0.1.11 0.1.10 The current version should digest very large collections now. It is tested with small collections only, but the relevant parts of the code use streampos instead of int now. THIS MEANS more»
