This paper describes the results of an ongoing collaborative project between KPN Research and the Telematics Institute on multimedia information handling. The focus of the paper is the modelling and retrieval of audiovisual information. The paper presents a general framework for modeling multimedia information (ADMIRE) and discusses the application of this(More)
Zebra Finches (Taeniopygia guttata) are highly social and monogamous birds that display relatively low levels of aggression and coordinate group life mainly by means of vocal communication. In the wild, small groups may congregate to larger flocks of up to 150-350 birds. Little is known, however, about possible effects of population density on development(More)
Easy access to multimedia information is important as the amount of information is exponentially growing. Content-based retrieval is a viable approach. Extensibility and flexibility of data models is another important issue as the field is constantly evolving. The ADMIRE framework applied in this paper satisfies both criteria. This we show in two practical(More)
Over 60 million birds, of many species, cross the North Sea each year, twice. Light has a significant impact on migratory birds at sea, as it can attract and trap birds at large illuminated structures, such as off shore platforms. We first studied the behaviour of birds around offshore platforms and secondly tested the effect of the presence of lighting,(More)
