This model extends Cheryl Sidebotham's work on the original jigsaw model by Cheryl Sidebotham. This model is of a jigsaw puzzle assembly environment where pieces can be connected and separated and uses the Arca notation to define the underlying model of the jigsaw. Pieces can be moved around a workspace and added to a jigsaw board. They can be joined if believed to be correct, and split up if not. There are facilities to load in user-defined images and a facility whereby EDEN will search all the pieces in the jigsaw to see if a particular colour exists in that piece. [Chris R]
