Abstract

3D MARS is an interactive visualization system for Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR). In 3D MARS, the user browses and queries images in an immersive 3D Virtual Reality space of CAVE. The results of the query are displayed in 3D, so that the user can see the result with respect to three different criteria such as color, texture and structure. The user can examine the result from different view angles by flying-through the space with the joystick. Based on the user's feedback, the system dynamically reorganize its visualization scheme. By giving meanings to each axis, the user can determine which features are important. In addition, the Sphere mode visualization is provided as a powerful analyzing tool for CBIR researchers.
