Pictures are taken from the paper “A descriptor for large scale image retrieval based on sketched feature lines” \ M. Eitz, K. Hildebrand, T. Boubekeur, and M. Alexa.
Digital cameras have lead to vast amounts of digital images, many accessible for free through the internet (e.g. Flickr). Finding an image in a database that is close to a mental model is an important and difficult task. Currently, most queries are either based on textual annotations, rough color sketches or other images.
In this project we will develop an algorithm for finding an image from a large database, using only a hand-made sketch.
