Discipline-based Descriptors for Image Retrieval: Representing Presidential Images of Korea

이미지 검색을 위한 영역별 기술어에 관한 연구 - 한국의 대통령 사진기록물을 중심으로 -

  • Published : 2008.03.30


While relevant studies emphasize the significance of user-oriented indexing associated with fulfilling both topical and non-topical needs of individual users, a great number of operational retrieval systems supports only those searches related to subject attributes of the users' needs. Retrieval systems for presidential image collections are not an exception for such a restriction. Upon this reality. this study seeks diversification of access points for presidential images based on descriptors directly presented by potential user groups. Improvements of subject-based descriptors are suggested based on those descriptors identified.
