ImageHive communicates information about an image collection by generating a summary image that preserves the relationships between images and avoids occluding their salient parts. It uses a constrained graph-layout algorithm first, to preserve image similarities and keep important parts visible, and then a constrained Voronoi tessellation algorithm to locally refine the layout and tile the image plane. 
Content-Based Visual Summarization for Image Collections
TLDR
A content-based approach that automatically generates a clear and informative visual summarization based on design principles and cognitive psychology to represent image collections and can precisely and efficiently capture the main content of image collections better than alternative methods or commercial tools.

A Joint Optimization Model for Image Summarization Based on Image Content and Tags
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel framework, named JOINT, which employs both image content and tag information to summarize images and imposes the lasso penalty on the objective function to yield a concise summary set. Expand
CLAN Photo Presenter: Multi-modal Summarization Tool for Image Collections
TLDR
A prototype software tool that automatically creates multi-modal summaries of personal image collections by enriching the visual collage with keyword annotation is introduced, which is presented as a web page that allows users to browse and share the summarized data. Expand
A Semantic-Based Method for Visualizing Large Image Collections
TLDR
A novel visual analytic system to analyze images in a semantic-aware manner, inspired by the galaxy metaphor, which turns the projected 2D space to a galaxy visualization of images, in which semantic keywords and images are visually encoded as stars and planets. Expand
Visual summarization of image collections by fast RANSAC
TLDR
A novel approach to select a summary set of images from a large image collection by improved Random Sample Consensus (RANSAC) and Affinity Propagation (AP) clustering that significantly outperforms other methods. Expand
Similarity-based visualization of large image collections
TLDR
iMap, a treemap-based representation for visualizing and navigating image search and clustering results, and an embedded visualization that integrates image tags for in-place search refinement are developed. Expand
A picture paints a thousand words: a method of generating image-text timelines
TLDR
This paper introduces a novel solution which generates image-text timelines for news events based on Evolutionary Image-Text Summarization, which is an important and challenging problem. Expand
Tree-Based Visualization and Optimization for Image Collection
The visualization of an image collection is the process of displaying a collection of images on a screen under some specific layout requirements. This paper focuses on an important problem that isExpand
PhotoRecomposer: Interactive Photo Recomposition by Cropping
TLDR
To better convey the compositions of a large number of example photos, this work has developed a multi-level, example photo layout method to balance multiple factors such as compactness, aspect ratio, composition distance, stability, and overlaps. Expand
Comparing Personal Image Collections with PICTuReVis

Spatial visualization for content-based image retrieval
TLDR
A novel optimized technique is proposed to visualize the retrieved images not only in order of their decreasing similarities but also according to their mutual similarities visualized on a 2-D screen. Expand
Does organisation by similarity assist image browsing?
TLDR
Two experiments are described, both involving designers as the participants, examining whether similarity-based arrangements of the candidate images are helpful for a picture selection task, and an arrangement based on visual similarity was more formally compared with a control of a random arrangement.

Interactive access to large image collections using similarity-based visualization
TLDR
This paper presents an optimal visualization scheme, supporting users in interacting with large image collections, and shows that the proposed scheme significantly improves performance for a given task compared to the 2D grid-based visualizations commonly used in content-based image retrieval.

IPSep-CoLa: An Incremental Procedure for Separation Constraint Layout of Graphs
TLDR
A scatterplot tool for personal digital assistants that allows the handling of many thousands of items is presented by incorporating two alternative interaction techniques: a geometric-semantic zoom that provides smooth transition between overview and detail, and a fisheye distortion that displays the focus and context regions of the scatterplot in a single view.

TLDR
The approach of Voronoi treemaps presented in this paper eliminates problems with the aspect ratio of the rectangles as well as with identifying the visualized hierarchical structure, and allows for creating treemap visualizations within areas of arbitrary shape. Expand
