Annotation Collection and Online Performance Evaluation for Video Surveillance: the ViSOR Project
Abstract: This paper presents the Visor (VIdeo Surveillance Online Repository) project designed with the aim of establishing anopen platform for collecting, annotating, retrieving, sharingsurveillance videos, and of evaluating the performanceof automatic surveillance systems. The main idea is to exploitthe collaborative paradigm spreading in the web communityto join together the ontology based annotation andretrieval concepts and the requirements of the computer visionand video surveillance communities. The ViSOR openrepository is based on a reference ontology which integratesmany concepts, also coming from LSCOM and MediaMillontologies. The web interface allows video browse, queryby annotated concepts or by keywords, compressed videopreview, media download and upload. The repository containsmetadata annotations, which can be either manuallycreated as ground truth or automatically generated by videosurveillance systems. Their automatic annotations can becompared each other or with the reference ground-truth exploitingan integrated on-line performance evaluator.
