Tracker

Tracker is a semantic data storage for desktop and mobile devices. Tracker uses W3C standards for RDF ontologies using Nepomuk with SPARQL to query and update the data. What this means is, Tracker is a central repository of user information, that provides two big benefits for the user; shared data between applications and information which is relational to other information (for example: mixing contacts with files, locations, activities and more).

Some of our experience…

  • Nokia: In 2007 Lanedo took the lead in a development effort to bring Tracker to the embedded space and cover all content searching needs on the modern desktop. Five companies and several hundred of contributors worked and coordinated together and achieved an amazing technology that is highly optimized for today’s devices ranging from phones to desktops and that has been awarded the role of the official GNOME desktop search engine. The practical use Nokia was applying Tracker to included sharing contact information between the phone, calendar and email applications. Storing SMS and MMS messages. Providing shared access to media (such as images, audio and video) between applications like the phone, contact list and web browser. And much more!
