TAGAZAN The handbook

By Betty Queffelec

Summary
The database is constituted by Initiatives to manage coastal risks linked to climate change sent by IMCORE partners (one card by initiative described). The application developed by Josquin Debaz, Nils Grunwald and Betty Queffelec is a free software (see : http://tagazan.sourceforge.net/). Its consultation interface has been built with the idea to be as simple as possible to be easily used and quick to understand by the users. It aims to allow the user to find the most interesting initiatives for him, i.e those which will be especially useful for him. This is possible through the exploration of experiences described in the initiatives following three modalities : - by accessing all texts (by titles linked to full text of each initiative card) - search by words in the texts (like google) and categories - Through tags defined by researchers (in collaboration with final users) and linked to pieces of text selected in the initiatives cards. You can access to the database writing the following address in your favorite navigator : http://www.imcore.eu/tagazan 2
