Advanced search with dating filter

Due to the great interest and the demand for the possibility to filter search results by dating, we decided to integrate a first preliminary version of our dating filter in the advanced search. So far, about 80% of all records of the 113 image databases in prometheus are tagged with dates. Of these, about 75% are available for filtering by dating. In the coming weeks and months, we will continuously improve the data and filter functionality. In addition, we are working on the integration of a slider as well as on the optimization and renewal of the user*interface, which we are all very excited about.

Try out the dating filter.

For example, if you search for “Venice” in the title in the advanced search, you will get 3,998 records in the results list and the dating filter. If you now limit the results there to 1900 to 1950, there are 187 records with time periods such as “1840-1906”, “1846-1937”, or “1855-1900”, with estimated dates such as “around 1901” or “around 1895”, and with unique dates from the time period you are looking for.

We welcome your feedback on usability, as well as suggestions for improvement and any errors that may occur. We will also soon integrate a way to report incorrect dating information in an uncomplicated way, so that the data quality can be improved even faster with your help.
