||Semiautomatic Extraction of Thesauri and Semantic Search in a Digital Image Archive
||ELPUB2006. Digital Spectrum: Integrating Technology and Culture - Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Electronic Publishing held in Bansko, Bulgaria 14-16 June 2006 / Edited by: Bob Martens, Milena Dobreva. ISBN 978-954-16-0040-5, 2006, pp. 279-290
||The topics addressed in this paper are threefold: First, techniques for the semiautomatic normalization of image descriptors in a digital image collection from free text titles and keywords. Second, the efficient construction of thesauri for specific image collections. And third, the optimisation of search mechanisms to deal with the special characteristics of the image collections and with the use made by users through web-based search interfaces. The solutions presented here have been developed in the framework of a commercial project intended to improve image search in a website for selling photographs through the web. The ultimate goal of this project is to improve the customer accessibility to a collection of more than two million photographs.
