Paper Abstract

This paper presents a novel method for visualizing the results of an image search. Current approaches to visualizing WWW image searches rank results in a linear list and presents them as a sorted thumbnail grid. The method outlined in this paper visually clusters images based on the user's search terms. To accomplish this, a flexible image retrieval method which incorporates a combination of content-based and textural image matching is used. A new information visualization is used to display the search results.
