Paper Abstract

We propose a graphical indexing of images to be exposed on the Web. This should be accomplished by "keypics", i.e. auxiliary, simplified pictures referring to the geometrical and/or the semantic content of the indexed image. Keypics should not be rigidly standardized; they should be left free to evolve, to express nuances and to stress details. A mathematical tool for dealing with such freedom already exists: Size Functions. We support the idea of keypics with some experiments on a 498 images dataset.
