Rerum Novarum: Interactive Exploration of Illuminated Manuscripts

Abstract: This paper describes an interactive application for the exploration and annotation of illuminated manuscripts, which typically contain thousands of pictures, used to comment or embellish the manuscript Gothic text. The system is composed by a modern user interface for browsing, surfing and querying, an automatic segmentation module, to ease the initial picture extraction task, and a similarity based retrieval engine, used to provide visually assisted tagging capabilities. A relevance feedback procedure is included to further refine the results.
