Indexing and Retrieval of Visual Design Representations
Indexing and retrieval of architectural visual databases refer to multiple levels
of abstraction and various points of view which may co-exist in a single image.
This complexity is increased by the necessity to structure architectural images into
well-defined, meaningful representations. We propose that the correlation of do-
main analysis and general methods and techniques provides the background to the
solution of most problems and a deeper understanding of the structure of indexing
and retrieval in architecture.
