Using Words to Search a Thousand Images: Hierarchical Faceted Metadata in Search Interfaces (31 Jan 2003)
In this talk I will present an interface paradigm called Flamenco which allows users to navigate explicitly along conceptual dimensions that describe the collections' items. The interface makes use of hierarchical faceted metadata and dynamically generated query previews to seamlessly integrate category browsing with keyword searching. I will also present the results of a new usability study, conducted with art history students and fine arts images, that found strong preference results for the faceted category interface over that of the standard approach, suggesting this is a promising approach for image search interfaces.
