New image retrieval technology, which is used for a service demonstration project ldquoView Search Hokkaidordquo in ldquoInformation Grand Voyage Projectrdquo conducted by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, Japan, is presented in this paper. The new technology enables image retrieval based on low-level features without utilizing any tag-based scheme and realizes a 3D interface for image retrieval. This 3D interface can provide new user experience, which has not been provided by the conventional retrieval services. The effectiveness of the 3D interface has been verified in ldquoView Search Hokkaidordquo.
