Demo: Image query by color

GIS is a new research area in the Visual Lab and is dedicated to grow substantially over the next few years.

Currently we're looking for undergraduate and graduate students for research projects, and for MSc students that would like to do a thesis in the areas of Computer Graphics, Geometry, Image Processing, Meteorology and Visualization. Students will have access to workstations, video capturing, real-time video recording, digital imaging, and more in the computer graphics research lab.

Current and future research areas include but are not limited to:

  • Real time tracking
  • Out door surveillance
  • Texture multiresolution
  • Image compression
  • Surface modeling
  • Color identification and representations
  • Image segmentation
  • Handling and visualizing large scale multiresolution terrain and image data
  • Computational geometry problems in image and detections methods
  • Internet based on image mining
  • Image retrieval in database applications
  • Geographic information systems for meteorology
  • 3D data retrieval based on 2D images
