Image Content Modeling
Conceptual image data model; Image data model; Image metadata
Image Content Modeling deals with the issue of representing the content of image data, that is, designing the high- and low-level abstraction model of the raw image objects and their correlations to facilitate various operations. These operations may include media object selection, insertion, editing, indexing, browsing, querying, retrieval, and exchange. The image content model relies, therefore, on the extraction of feature vectors and their respective representations obtained during the annotation process. Several standards for representing the content of an image are known. The most prominent ones are MPEG-7 and JPSearch including low- and high-level abstractions or the EXIF data description vocabulary for the description of very specific technical attributes of an image.
Many models for describing the content of an image have been created in the past. Most of them rely on...
