Visualisation of large image databases

Abstract

Following the ever-growing sizes of image databases, effective methods for visualising such databases and navigating through them are much sought after. These methods should provide an "overview" of a complete database together with the possibility to zoom into certain areas during a specific search. It is crucial that the user interacts in an intuitive way with such a system in order to effectively arrive at images of interest. In this chapter, we look at several techniques that have been presented in the literature and allow for browsing and navigation of large image databases.
