One of the main characteristics of Internet era is the free and online availability of extremely large collections of images. Although the proliferation of millions of shared photos provide a unique opportunity for cultural heritage e-documentation, the main difficulty is that Internet image datasets are unstructured. For this reason, this paper aims to describe a new image indexing scheme with application in 3D reconstruction. The presented approach is capable, on the one hand to index images…

Building Rome in a day

A system that can match and reconstruct 3D scenes from extremely large collections of photographs such as those found by searching for a given city on Internet photo sharing sites and is designed to scale gracefully with both the size of the problem and the amount of available computation.

Improved texture feature based image retrieval using Kekre’s fast codebook generation algorithm

Content Based Image Retrieval systems have found applications in various fields like fabric and fashion design, interior design as panoramic views, art galleries, museums, architecture/ engineering design, and retailing and image search on the Internet.

VIRaL: Visual Image Retrieval and Localization

This work concerned with the problem of accurately finding the location where a photo is taken without needing any metadata, that is, solely by its visual content, shows that the time is right for automating the geo-tagging process, and shows how this can work at large scale.

Object retrieval with large vocabularies and fast spatial matching

To improve query performance, this work adds an efficient spatial verification stage to re-rank the results returned from the bag-of-words model and shows that this consistently improves search quality, though by less of a margin when the visual vocabulary is large.

Dynamic Two-Stage Image Retrieval from Large Multimodal Databases

A method for image retrieval from multimodal databases, which improves both the effectiveness and efficiency of traditional CBIR by exploring secondary modalities and shows that such dynamic two-stage setups can be significantly more effective and robust than similar setups with static thresholds previously proposed.

Content Based Image Retrieval using Hierarchical and K-Means Clustering Techniques

An image retrieval system that takes an image as the input query and retrieves images based on image content based on hierarchical and k-means clustering techniques is presented.

Schematic surface reconstruction

A schematic representation for architectural scenes together with robust algorithms for reconstruction from sparse 3D point cloud data, composed of a handful of planar curves, and easily interpretable by humans is introduced.

Total Recall: Automatic Query Expansion with a Generative Feature Model for Object Retrieval

This paper brings query expansion into the visual domain via two novel contributions: strong spatial constraints between the query image and each result allow us to accurately verify each return, suppressing the false positives which typically ruin text-based query expansion.

Tour the world: Building a web-scale landmark recognition engine

This paper leverages the vast amount of multimedia data on the Web, the availability of an Internet image search engine, and advances in object recognition and clustering techniques, to address issues of modeling and recognizing landmarks at world-scale.

On-line Spectral Learning in Exploring 3D Large Scale Geo-Referred Scenes

An adaptive framework through the use of adaptive spectral learning which tailors 3D navigation to user's current needs is proposed which is able to dynamically capture user's preferences dynamics.
