Saved Link Concepts

Links are organized and accessed by link group. This can be anything the user wants. Some suggestions are some combination of user, project, department or date.

This link has the session information stored in the server's database which makes it stable to use for bookmarking and for sharing.

This link uses the legacy link parameters. The advantage of this link is that it will be stable across different servers (with the same data). The disadvantages are that it can get longer than a browser (IE) can handle. It also cannot handle the complex options such as minimum correspondences (which can be different for each map set added in the image).


When there are a lot of saved links, the saved link viewer page might get cluttered. Hidding a link makes it invisible to the saved link viewer (unless specifically looking for hidden links) but is still in the database so that it can be accessed (via bookmark or other system).
