Overview

An up-to-date, expert guide to modern digital image databases This volume presents the state of the art in digital image database design, with a concentration on storage and retrieval techniques, and includes a set of selected application case studies. Chapters by experts from around the world explore a variety of techniques for accessing images based on color, texture, shape, and semantic descriptions. Underlying principles are stressed, including compression, indexing, storage organization, and transmission. Image Databases also features detailed coverage of these important issues: Hierarchical storage management Database support Search at multiple abstraction levels Content extraction from compressed imagery Standards for representation and search Case studies cover important application areas including: Photographic images Satellite imagery Images in the oil industry Medical imagery A wide range of introductory material and an extensive bibliography makes Image Databases an excellent text for graduate-level students. It also serves as a valuable reference for developers and researchers in the field, and as a guide for helping IT professionals more fully understand the discipline.
