  • The VISI-1 prototype provides an image retrieval system for exploring basic CBIR (Content-based image retrieval) techniques as implemented in Oracle's image search functions. It was adapted for the CAIM project in the summer of 2007 by application of the initial Bergen/By database.

  • The VISI2/BergenBy prototype extends VISI-1 with support for utilization of context variables in visual image retrieval. Currently, VISI2 supports image retrieval using image content (CBIR), text descriptors (TBIR) and GPS location specifications. Aslo supported are CBIR+GPS and CBIR+TBIR input combinations.
  • The BergenBy database currently contains 260+ images of buildings, statues, monuments, and street scenes within the Bergen area.

  • The VISI/Maritime prototype supports visual image retrieval (CBIR) using uploaded images or user constructed drawings.

  • The Maritime database contains 400+ images of predominently, marine animals.
