Efficient and effective techniques for managing and browsing large image databases are increasingly sought after. This chapter presents a simple yet efficient and effective approach to navigating image datasets. Based on the concept of a globe as visualisation and navigation medium, thumbnails are projected onto the surface of a sphere based on their colour. Navigation is performed by rotating and tilting the globe as well as zooming into an area of interest. Experiments based on a medium size image database demonstrate the usefulness of the presented approach.
