Image indexing and retrieval: some problems and proposed solutions

Graeme Baxter, Douglas Anderson
1995 New Library World  
Designed to manage an extensive collection of spacerelated images, it allows a more traditional textual approach as well as a prototype visual thesaurus approach.  ...  Meanwhile, the JSC system's prototype visual thesaurus is constructed around 200 "popular images" which, with the use of Hypercard software, are linked to associated terms in the JSC thesaurus -a hierarchical  ...

A collection of visual thesauri for browsing large collections of geographic images

Marshall C. Ramsey, Hsinchun Chen, Bin Zhu, Bruce R. Schatz, Mark E. Rorvig, Lois F. Lunin
1999 Journal of the American Society for Information Science  
The main challenge is that indexing and thesaurus creation are extremely laborintensive processes for text documents and especially for images.  ...  Such enormous collections make human indexing and thesaurus generation methods impossible to utilize.  ...  The original data products were produced under the NOAA/NASA Pathfinder program, by a processing team headed by Ms.  ...

Image Information Retrieval: An Overview of Current Research

Abby A. Goodrum
2000 Informing Science  
Rorvig's (1988) examination of the use of the NASA Visual Thesaurus indicated that given a choice most users reverted to text rather than search using images as input.  ...  If users interactions with visual IR systems is determined in some part by their tasks, by the type of images in the collection, or by the users' domain, then interfaces will have to be developed to capitalize  ...

Corpus-Based Thesaurus Construction for Image Retrieval in Specialist Domains [chapter]

Khurshid Ahmad, Mariam Tariq, Bogdan Vrusias, Chris Handy
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper explores the use of texts that are related to an image collection, also known as collateral texts, for building thesauri in specialist domains to aid in image retrieval.  ...  The effectiveness of such an approach is demonstrated through a prototype system that has been developed for the storage and retrieval of images and texts, applied in the forensic science domain. 2 http  ...  These could be manually built by expert lexicographers, of which there are a number of examples like the NASA thesaurus 4 and the Arts and Architecture Thesaurus (AAT) 5 , however, handcrafted thesauri  ...

2017 Charleston Advisor  
However, the lack of clear branding, an uneven application of phrase searching, and a missing thesaurus of NASA terminology highlights that this integration may not be the best.  ...  Those selected articles can then be e-mailed, downloaded, copied to a temporary clipboard, or added to a collection. Note that creating a collection requires the setting up of an account.  ...  A major drawback is the lack of a thesaurus or index regarding NASA terminology.  ...
