This paper discusses the collaborative evolution of a digital system to provide support for landscape architects and other design professionals in storing, encountering and retrieving large bodies of 'inspirational objects', mostly in the form of images. The system combines visual 'weak indexing' of objects through placing them in a visual environment, with easy-to-use methods for allocating keywords to objects on a variety of dimensions. The system design is informed by ethnographic observations of landscape architects' work, and by experience gained with earlier prototypes. The features of the system are described, and illustrated with a scenario of use in landscape architectural work.
