Look for the Sky with SkyFinder

Last August at SIGGRAPH, an international conference on computer graphics, a group presented an innovative system designed to analyze images of the sky. The SkyFinder (link opens .pdf file) system automatically extracts a set of sky attributes—such as category, layout, richness, horizon, or sun position—from each image in a collection. This enables users to search the collection interactively at the semantic level using text queries, like “a landscape at sunset with the sun at the bottom left”.
