The I-SEARCH project is dedicated to developing a platform to manage 2D and 3D multimedia documents. A data model will be developed that can capture the details and specifications of a 2D or 3D image or video. Then, users can more efficiently search multimedia collections using a query system instead of simple keywords.

For example, users can draw a chair with their mouse or upload a photo of a chair, and the system will recognize the image as a chair and then bring up similar sketches in a furniture supplier catalogue.
