The VisionBib.Com site is a collection of web sites that provide a variety of resources related, mostly, to the area of Computer Vision.

icon The Annotated Computer Vision Bibliography

with indexes for Author, Journal/Conference, Keyword, Words in title, and Authors by year was last modified on Sunday, December 21, 2014, 8:15 pm. This bibliography first appeared on the internet in early 1994 (before Google, before Internet Explorer) and provides information on 150,000+ scientific papers in the field of computer vision, image processing, character recognition and other related topics. Many entries have links to online versions (130,000+), but most journals require you to purchase the full text. (The statistics page, with totals of authors, titles, and other references charts the explosive growth in publications in the field from the occasional paper in the 1950s to the thousands per year today.) VisionBib is the official complete site for the bibliography. The original USC Iris Vision Bibliography has the complete list of papers, but lacks the extra indexing due to the difficulty of updates using its new server. Several subsets, described below, have been extracted into separate sub-sites.

Recent bibliography updates (primarily the current month) are provided through a set of RSS Feed RSS feeds for new papers. These are arranged by the same sections used on the contents page.

The bibliography has precomputed index links for Author, Journal, or Word in the Title (KWIC: Key Word In Context). These are on the main page or also grouped in the Jump directly to the index page. The browsing options from the home page often give better information. Co-authors are available from the Author index.

The historical Rosenfeld Bibliography data is also available, but it is incomplete (i.e. it ends in 1998) and is produced by an automatic translation so there are errors.

General Resource Listing for Computer Vision

General computer vision link are described in more detail in the Extended Computer Vision Resources Listing.

Research Groups in Computer Vision

Research groups (primarily universities) are listed somewhat geographically. Some companies are included in this list, others show up under the vendors list.

Icon The Complete Conference Listing for Computer Vision and Image Analysis

lists current conferences, workshops, etc. with information on paper submissions, locations, websites, and an archive of this information for past meetings. A complete listing of Conference deadlines for about the next 3 months is also available. For listing by year (with some sort options) see the One Year Conference List.

Other Things of Interest

Stonehenge Stereo Left Stonehenge Stereo Right

Stereo, Human and Computer

Stereo, the use of 2 or more images to provide three-dimensional information or displays, has a long history. Stereo for sound (music) came much later. I have collected some stereo pairs, which can be viewed on the screen. Most of these are scenery, but there are some with buildings.

Yosemite National Park

Yosemite

Why Yosemite? It is a place I enjoy. I have included some pictures and pointers to the usual places, and some not so usual. Enjoy. And the picture at the top, it is correct. This is not the usual view of Half Dome from the Valley or Glacier Point, it is the view from Clouds Rest so the half part of the dome is on the "wrong" side.

Sequoia National Park

Sequoia-Kings Canyon

Sequoia and Kings Canyon are not quite Yosemite, but together they have more to offer than just the trees (remember, they are sequoias, not redwoods). I have included some pictures and pointers to the usual places. Enjoy.

Grand Canyon Kaibab Trail

Grand Canyon

A lot of places claim to be the Grand Canyon of something-or-the-other, but there is only one Grand Canyon. Grand Canyon is timeless, yet provides a record of time; changeless, yet is different by the hour. Other canyons may be longer, deeper, wider, steeper, but none have all the qualities that make this canyon Grand.

Los Angeles

A really interesing site about Architecture in Los Angeles, from someone who spends vacations here. (The LA Times story of April 11, 2007 says it best.)

Are the billboards in Los Angeles getting you down? In 2008 Christine Pelisek wrote an article in LA Weekly: Billboards Gone Wild: 4,000 Illegal Billboards Choke L.A.'s Neighborhoods which included 4 listings of billboards for 3 of the major companies in LA. These are available for browsing at my LA Billboard Information Site (including maps showing locations) and adding new information. This resource should help understand how widespread the problem has become. Please add information on other locations and provide some of the missing information on those that are included.

A lot of this has been derived from my work with the Computer vision group at USC.
