Abstract:With the popularity of mobile terminal equipped with camera, lots of photos were taken to record the user daily life. The photos were associated with rich metadata such as time, location, author and event, etc. How to use these metadata to efficiently manage the photos has become a hot research topic.This paper proposed a novel method of complex graph to analyze and visualize mobile photo album.Considered a photo was as a node,used the relevance of photos based on multi-dimensional metadata to build the edges between nodes. So all photos in the album would be formed a complex multiple dimension weight network.This paper also analyzed the statistic feature of such a photo generated complex network, and discovered it had the small work effect. Photo complex network was used not only for visualization of multidimensional relation of photo, but also for quick photo retrieval.......
