The image-based search engine for art exhibition/gallery (ImBa SEA) is like any search engine but will provide a better functionality. The ImBa SEA is specially design for art gallery where lies thousands of arts displayed on the exhibition. With the help of the ImBa SEA, the user can upload image that they have snapped into the system to retrieve the information about the art itself. Some features are very difficult to describe with text, some special textures and complex shapes cannot be clearly represented by alphanumeric inputs. The arts need to be digitalized and stored in the gallery’s database. Based on the existing way of accessing information for art gallery, instead of directly using the image as a ‘keyword’ to retrieve information, each art have its own name. The name is stored in the art gallery database, with the relevant information. However, this method takes some time because some arts have the similar name or a long name. This decreases the accuracy of the search engine to retrieve information of the art wish to be accessed. With ImBa SEA, the user directly uses the image to retrieve the information on the given art. Each art will have its own unique id to ease the process of retrieving information. The image is uploaded into the search engine, and then it will process the image to look for similarity of the image with the images stored in the database. Once the similar image is found in the database, the unique id of the art is used to retrieve the information of the image. Basically,ImBa SEA compares the two images pixel by pixel to look for similarities. This technique will surely provide better efficiency and accuracy on information retrieval. This paper will discuss everything from the problem faced, and scope concentrated to achieve the objectives of the project which are discussed in Chapter 1. The system or technologies related or similar with the ImBa SEA are discussed in Chapter 2: Literature Review. Also, the research methodology of the project is discussed later in Chapter 3 together with the development methodology. The basic structure is also discussed in this paper to give a clear view on how the system works. The future plans on the ImBa SEA are discussed at the end of this paper.
