Author Affiliations +
Although content based retrieval of images is increasingly common, the use of media content as a basis for navigation has received relatively little attention. In this paper we describe our recent development of facilities in the MAVIS/Microcosm architecture for generic link authoring and following from non-text media and in particular, the use of shape and texture for content based navigation from images. Applications from a product catalogue and an archaeological collection are presented, together with an outline of an image viewer providing rapid delineation of object shapes in images when authoring or following links.
