Index Support for Content-Based Multimedia Exploration

Content-based multimedia exploration systems support users in browsing and searching voluminous multimedia databases in an interactive and playful way. Guiding the user navigation and exploration process through the database contents, similarity-based layouts frequently serve as effective and intuitive user interfaces offering a multitude of easy-to-use query functionalities. In order to process queries arising in similarity-based layouts efficiently, we propose to support content-based exploration systems with index structures. For this purpose, we present a general approach which supports any kind of distance-based index structure. By evaluating our approach, we show that it improves the efficiency of content-based multimedia exploration.
