Visual interfaces for a semantic content-based image retrieval system

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


In an earlier study a Semantic Content Based Image Retrieval system was developed. The system requires a Visual Object Process Diagram - VOPD to be created for each image in the database and for the query. This is a major drawback since it requires the user and database manager to be acquainted with the rules and structures of the VOPD. This is not trivial and in fact troublesome to the naive user. To overcome this drawback two approaches are presented in this work, to provide an interface to the Image Retrieval system and to bypass the need of manually creating VOPD representations.
