The documents and pictures in the weSee system are like postcards. The information and the links are in the same file as the picture, not in a separate HTML-document which is difficult and expensive to handle. If you move a picture, the information and the links follow automatically.
The 'postcard technique' is called XML and XMP and it is the worldwide organisation w3c and the company Adobe who has developed the basic functions.
With this 'postcard technique' and the weSee program it is easy and cost saving to work with digital libraries, large or small. Contrary to traditional database technology the weSee method also works over Internet. You can take whichever file you like from the tutorial and open it with the weSee-program (*), read the information and, in most cases, follow the links (**).
The weSee-method offers a lot of freedom compared to traditional database technology.
With weSee you can make links in a way, that is not possible with traditional HTML and database technology.
The yellow and green fields in the figure represent two pictures or documents. One of them can be a photo of your family or a house. The other can be a map, an aerial view or a biography. On the pictures you can identify people and other kind of objects. These objects can be linked together. When you click an object you move yourself to the linked object and can see and read the information. This way you can make webs of objects and files and the links will operate over the Internet (**) if you wish. In the tutorial you can practice for yourself.
The weSee-method brakes 30-years of technology and is a paradigm in computer technology.
Patent Application for the weSee method is pending.
