Towards Artistic Collections Navigation Tools based on Relevance Feedback

Abstract: Artistic image collections are usually managed via textual metadata into standard content management systems. More sophisticated searches can be performed using image retrieval technologies based on visual content. Nevertheless, the problem of the information presentation remains. In this paper we try to move beyond the classic grid-styled presentation model, suggesting a novel use of relevance feedback as a navigation tool. Relevance feedback is therefore used to warp the view and allow the user to spatially navigate the image collection, and at the same time focus on his retrieval aim. This is obtained exploiting a distance based space warping on the 2D projection of the distance matrix. Multitouch gestures are employed to provide feedbacks by natural interaction with the system.
