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
