GDBI, a java program by Daniel Kionka, which had different versions for about 5 or 6 GEDCOM programs, including PhpGedView, was the 'winner' in suggesting possible matches. Enter a new person, click ADD and instead of a simple add, it would search to see if it found someone similar and present a listing of all possible matches. Pretty cool

A couple of us had always hoped a similar function would be added to webtrees - but we'll have to see.

GDBI, ...., was the 'winner' in suggesting possible matches

I did use that some, and as you said (which I didn't quote) it did an impressive job of finding a likely match one person at a time. GIM scanned the whole database and did an impressive job of predicting all the matches, as well as a decent job of doing recursive merging.

Last I heard from the developers, they were going to do something similar in Java. But as far as I can tell, that never materialized and their first project appears to have stagnated since then. The website still exists, so someone is paying GoDaddy for the hosting account, but the web page is labeled as last updated in 2000. And the contact address on the website bounces.

I found what shoujld have been legitimate contact information for them, but no response to my questions (and no bounce).

Hehe 4 years later I finally played with this a little. Spent some time looking around the database wrote a simple interface to extract basic information I'm after and convert to JSON for use in a service and then wrote a prototype around conceptually what I'm looking for. Curious to see what you all think this is a view of a simple experimental prototype of the results.

I have made some software related to this public Family Circles

Using the service I converted my webtrees GEDCOM export to Family Circles JSON then rendered the entire thing in the viewer. This a very zoomed out view of my entire webtrees.



For large modes like the above the software still has a bunch of positioning issues but still sort of interesting to see.

You can find other examples on the above link this is picture form the explorer application using the Game of Thrones data set.



I'm working on a service that supports the Family Circles API but uses the webtrees database as its data source. So you can use the explorer or builder directly with you webtrees server then from the builder export static data that can be used in the viewer.

For anyone interested I provided information about additional integration work I have done for webtrees with FamilyCircles.
