NAME

       gnuift — GNU Image Finding Tool - index and search images by content

DESCRIPTION

       This   manual   page   documents   briefly   the   gnuift   and  gift-*
       commands.

       This manual page was written for the Debian  distribution  because  the
       original program does not have a manual page.

       The  GIFT  (the  GNU  Image-Finding  Tool)  is  a  Content  Based Image
       Retrieval System (CBIRS). It enables you to  do  Query  By  Example  on
       images,  giving  you  the  opportunity  to  improve  query  results  by
       relevance feedback. For processing  your  queries  the  program  relies
       entirely  on  the  content  of the images, freeing you from the need to
       annotate all images before querying the collection.

       The GIFT comes with a tool which lets you index whole  directory  trees
       containing  images  in one go. You then can use the GIFT server and its
       client, to browse your own image collections.

       The GIFT is an open framework for  content-based  image  retrieval.  We
       explicitly  have  taken into account the possibility of adding new ways
       of querying to the framework. Our communication  protocol  for  client-
       server   communication,   MRML,  is  XML  based  and  fully  documented
       (http://www.mrml.net).  This  aims  at  promoting  code   reuse   among
       researchers and application developers.

       The   current   version   of   the  GIFT  can  be  seen  in  action  at
       http://viper.unige.ch/demo/

       The GIFT (ex Viper) is the result of a research effort  at  the  Vision
       Group  at the CUI (computer science center) of the University of Geneva
       (see http://vision.unige.ch/). This cutting-edge research has been  the
       subject  of  several  publications and conference talks. Details can be
       found at http://viper.unige.ch/.

       The gnuift-doc package contains reference manuals, configuration  hints
       and further information.
