Cross-Curriculum Search for Intergeo
Intergeo is a European project dedicated to the sharing of
interactive geometry constructions. This pro ject is setting up an anno-
tation and search web platform which will offer and provide access to
thousands of interactive geometry constructions and resources using them.
The search platform should cross the boundaries of the curriculum stan-
dards of Europe. A topics and competency based approach to retrieval for
interactive geometry with designation of the semantic entities has been
adopted: it requests the contributor of an interactive geometry resource
to input the competencies and topics involved in a construction, and
allows the searcher to find it by the input of competencies and topics
close to them; both rely on plain-text-input.
This paper describes the current prototypes, the input-methods, the
workflows used, and the integration into the Intergeo platform.
