Images can affect people on an emotional level. Since the emotions that arise in the viewer of an image are highly subjective, they are rarely indexed. However there are situations when it would be helpful if images could be retrieved based on their emotional content. We investigate and develop methods to extract and combine low-level features that(More)
We introduce the isophotic metric, a new metric on surfaces, in which the length of a surface curve is not just dependent on the curve itself, but also on the variation of the surface normals along it. A weak variation of the normals brings the isophotic length of a curve close to its Euclidean length, whereas a strong normal variation increases the(More)
The general photographic ad-hoc retrieval task of the Im-ageCLEF 2007 evaluation campaign is described. This task provides both the resources and the framework necessary to perform comparative laboratory-style evaluation of visual information retrieval from generic photographic collections. In 2007, the evaluation objective concentrated on retrieval of(More)
We focus on the detection of orthogonal vanishing points using line segments extracted from a single view, and using these for camera self-calibration. Recent methods view this problem as a two-stage process. Vanishing points are extracted through line segment clustering and subsequently likely orthogonal candidates are selected for calibration.(More)
The use of 3D-polar coordinate representations of the RGB colour space is widespread, although many of these representations, such as HLS and HSV, have deficiencies rendering them unsuitable for quantitative image analysis. Three prerequisites for 3D-polar coordinate colour spaces which do not suffer from these deficiencies are suggested, and the results of(More)
BACKGROUND Medical Image segmentation is an important image processing step. Comparing images to evaluate the quality of segmentation is an essential part of measuring progress in this research area. Some of the challenges in evaluating medical segmentation are: metric selection, the use in the literature of multiple definitions for certain metrics,(More)
