Messing around with Heurist

October 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

“Heurist is a sophisticated eResearch tool for managing web bookmarks, references, notes, and a wide range of research data.”

It appears to essentially be a front-end interface to a back-end MySQL. As such, various forms of data can be inputted with different types. Also, a row of data could be joined to another by establishing some form of relationship (e.g. parentOf). The system seems to reflect the thinking behind Mostern and Johnson’s event model.

Heurist also accepts KML and geographic information, and can map such data automatically.
