The Advanced Visual Search Interface Demo


This is a fully functional visual search application that uses the eVe 2.1 Visual Search toolkit. It searches from a database of over 1000 uncategorized images selected from a diverse set of sources. The demo is called "Advanced" because it offers a sophisticated interface that lets the user have refined control over how a visual search is performed.


This interface is for the advanced user who understands how object-based visual search works. Using this interface, you can achieve impressively accurate visual search results. It is highly recommended that you begin with the tutorial when the demo launches.


Note: This demo is just one possible example and one possible interface using eVe. Search Engines, Digital Asset Management systems, and software developers can use the eVe SDK to create their own custom implementations.

Finally, select the relative importance to your search of Color, Shape, Texture, and/or Object (the 3D shading of an image). Click Search to find visually similar images.
