wikiview: A New Tool to Help Discover Images Available From Wikimedia Commons

It’s called wikiview, and it’s a graph-based visual image navigator.

The project was developed by Visual Computing at HTW Berlin, the same researchers behind Picsbuffet (a Fotolia stock photo explorer) and Akiwi (a semi-automatic image tagging service).
