Visualseek: a fully automated content-based image query system
Smith, J., Chang, S.F. (1996). Visualseek: a fully automated content-based image query system. In: Proc. ACM-MM, 87–98.
We describe a highly functional prototype system for searching by visual features in an image database. The VisualSEEk system is novel in that the user forms the queries by diagramming spatial arrangements of color regions. The system nds the images that contain the most similar arrangements of similar regions. Prior to the queries, the system automatically extracts and in- dexes salient color regions from the images. By utilizing e cient indexing techniques for color information, re- gion sizes and absolute and relative spatial locations, a wide variety of complex joint color/spatial queries may be computed.
