Recognizing Implicit Structures in Card Layouts
with T.Masui, supervised by S.Matsuoka
As an undergraduate student
I worked on recognition of spatial structure of
card layouts(1994 Oct - 1995 March).
An user can see a hierarchical structure (groups of cards)
in a distributed card layout.
I attempted to realize such ability in a computer system.
Conventionally, recognition of spatial structure is
achieved by "spatial template matching", that is,
the system has some spatial templates and
checks if the diagram satisfies one of them.
However, human beings perceive groups of cards based on
regularity and adjacency in a card distribution, and then,
my approach is to recognize structure based on these properties.
The prototype system is written in Scheme Tool Kit,
and makes it possible to manipulate card layouts interactively.
The focus of this research was to allow an user to manipulate directly
what the user perceives in the display.
