Event Semantic Photo Retrieval Management System based on MPEG-7

MPEG-7 기반의 이벤트 의미 포토 검색 관리 시스템

  • Published : 2007.01.28


Semantic photo retrieval has been an important role in reducing the semantic gap between the simple visual features and the abundant semantics delivered by a photo. Effective photo retrieval using semantics is one of the major challenges in photo retrieval. And we propose a new event semantic photo retrieval method by using photo annotation user interface. In this paper, A photo album management system that facilitates photo management and semantic retrieval, which fully relies on the MPEG-7 standard as an information base and a native XML database, has been designed and implemented.
