A new cloud-based photo sharing service has been launched by Canon. Project 1709 enables users to store and access images regardless of where they have been saved. This works due to a special tagging and indexing function.

This interesting news was found on Digital Spy in their article, “Canon launches cloud-based photo sharing service.” This has huge implications for the world of social networks, as it allows users to share pictures with friends and family. The project is in beta currently, but a full launch is expected next year.

True findability can only be achieved when you index against a solid, standards-based taxonomy. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies and associated rule bases for machine-assisted indexing.
