The growth of digital image collections in many areas of science and commercial environments has over the last decade spawned great interest in content-based image retrieval. A great variety of methods have been developed to retrieve images based on example queries and techniques to elicit and utilize relevance feedback (e.g. [4, 5]). Often the systems provide a simple framework that permits evaluation of the method and are not intended as full-fledged systems ready to be used in a realistic setting. Also, comparatively little effort has been expended on devising efficient techniques to browse image collections effectively. The few notable exceptions [1, 3, 6] treat browsing internally as a sequence of queries and thus do not leverage the performance benefits associated with pre-computed browsing structures.
