Visualization of Multimedia Database Queries
Many current content-based image retrieval systems suffer from poor result presentation. A sophisticated visualization can be used to identify differences between human perception of similarity and system-determined similarity. Analyzing such discrepancies is a prerequisite for a system trimmed towards the userís comprehension of the underlying retrieval process. The aim of the visualization techniques presented in this paper is to provide a tool to analyze a mismatch between the userís perception and the systemís calculation of similarity. We combine techniques of visual image retrieval and information visualization to acquire insight into the extracted feature data. In our project we implemented visualization techniques to present feature data on three different levels of abstraction. We discuss our experiences when working with a Data Table, a Parallel Coordinate Plot, and a Color Space Plot.
