背景技术 Background technique

近年来,为了使电子相册生成或者图像检索容易,能够在由图像摄像装置所摄影的图像数据中添加时间信息、位置信息、各种摄影条件等的信息。 In recent years, in order to make an electronic photo album or an image generated easy retrieval, information can be added by the time information of the image data of the image photographed in the imaging apparatus, the location information, in various shooting conditions and the like.

提出了根据添加在图像数据中的摄影场所的地名、住址、摄影曰期和时间、摄影者、关键字等信息,进行图像检索的技术。 According to information presented technical names added to the image data recording location, address, photography and time, saying, photographer, keywords, etc., for image retrieval.

例如,在特开2001 - 230999号公报中,公开了使得能够在便携电话机中显示、选择数码照相机内的图像的文件名、缩略图、性能等, 把选择图像从数码照相机便携式地进行发送的技术。 For example, in Laid-Open 2001-- Publication No. 230 999 discloses such a portable telephone can be displayed, the file name of the image selected in the digital camera, thumbnails, performance, etc., the selected image is transmitted from the portable digital camera technology.

另外,在摄影场所的地名、住址等位置信息中,能够使用GPS (Global Positioning System )信息。 Further, the position information of names, addresses and other photographic properties, it is possible to use GPS (Global Positioning System) information.

例如,在特开2001 -211364号公报中,公开了图像摄像装置接收GPS信号进行测位,把该测位信息发送到具有地图信息数据库的服务器。 For example, in Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2001 -211364 discloses an image pickup means for receiving GPS position measurement signals, transmits the positioning information to the server having a map information database. 服务器在把接收的测位信息变换为地图信息以后,再次发送到图像摄像装置,图像摄像装置把从服务器接收到的地图信息保存在图像数据的标题部分中。 After the server receives the positioning information is converted into map information, sent again to the image pickup apparatus, the image pickup apparatus receives the map information from the server stored in the header portion of the image data.

为此,当用户不能够判断在图像摄像装置中保存的图像数据上添加了GPS信息还是添加了基站ID号码时,如果根据位置信息进行图像检索时,无法判断可以使用哪个位置信息进行检索,十分不方便。 For this reason, when the user is not added can be determined on the image data stored in the image pickup apparatus or the GPS information is added a base station ID number, if the image retrieval based on position information, which position information can not be determined can be retrieved very inconvenient.

另外,在用位置信息以外的信息检索时,用户不清楚在图像摄像装置中保存的图像数据中添加了怎样的检索信息,在检索方面十分不方便。 Further, when retrieval information for other than the position information, the image data of the user stored in the clear in the image pickup apparatus added how information retrieval, retrieval is very inconvenient.

另外,在便携电话机等便携终端中,尽管存在具有GPS的测位功能或者使用了基站ID号码的测位功能的设备,但是当要在由图像摄像装置所摄影的图像上添加摄影场所的位置信息时,必须在图像摄 Further, the portable cellular phone terminal or the like, despite having a positioning function using GPS or a base station apparatus positioning function ID number, but when added to the position on the image photographed by the imaging means recording location when the information that must be taken in the image

像装置中设置有GPS的测位功能或者设置有使用了基站ID号码的测位功能,或者从具有测位功能的其它装置发送测位信息。 Imaging device is provided with positioning function using GPS or provided with a positioning function of the base station ID number, or other information transmitted from the positioning means having a positioning function.

如果图像摄像装置中设置测位功能,则成为减小图像摄像装置的体积的障碍。 If the image pickup apparatus provided in a positioning function, the reduced image of a barrier volume of the imaging apparatus.

在请求从其它的装置发送测位信息时,由于从图像摄像装置对于其它的装置请求测位信息,如果其它的装置接受了该请求,则进行测位,并把其结果发送到图像摄像装置,因此必须进行仅用于请求测位信息的连接。 When the request information from the other transmitting positioning apparatus, because the request positioning information from the image pickup device to another device, if the other device receives the request, the position measurement, and transmits the result to the image pickup device, it must only be connected to the positioning information request.

Fuji" character data and the like.

另外,上述「关键字」是r结婚典礼」、r夏威夷旅行J等字符数据。 Furthermore, the "keywords" wedding ceremony is r ', r J trip to Hawaii and other character data. 这里,判别检索条件是位置信息还是其以外的信息(S603 ), 在选择了时间或者关键字等检索条件时,通过把请求基于这些所选择的检索条件的检索的信息,即请求基于时间信息或者关键字的检索的指令和所检索的时间信息、关键字发送到图像摄像装置2,开始图像 Here, it is determined that the position information or the search condition information (S603) beyond which, when selecting the time or the keyword search condition, etc., by the information retrieval request based on the search condition selected, i.e., a request based on time information or command search keyword and the retrieved time information, is sent to the key 2, the image pickup apparatus starts

检索(S604)。 Retrieval (S604). 而且,从图像摄像装置2接收作为检索结果的图像数据(S616)。 Further, the imaging apparatus 2 receives the image data from the image as the search result (S616).

另夕卜,作为检索条件,在判别为设定了位置信息的情况下(S603 ), 向连接目标一侧(这里是图像摄像装置2)发送请求基于位置信息的检索的指令(S605)。 Another Bu Xi, as a search condition, is set at the determined position information of the case (S603), the connection destination side (here, the image pickup apparatus 2) transmission request command retrieving location information (S605) based.

如果在存储介质311中保存了添加了位置信息的图像数据,则接收了基于位置信息的检索请求的图像摄像装置2把图像:摄像装置2中存储的图像数据上添加的位置信息的属性发送到便携终端3。 If you save adds location information of the image data in the storage medium 311, the receiver based on the two image pickup means for retrieving the requested location information: send to the attribute position information added to image data 2 stored in the imaging apparatus 3 the portable terminal. 便携终端3通过蓝牙无线单元214、位置属性信息接收单元212从图像摄像装置2取得位置信息的属性(S606 ),并传送给CPU206。 The portable terminal 3214, the location attribute information receiving unit 212 via Bluetooth wireless unit acquired from the image pickup device 2 of the position information attribute (S606), and transmitted to the CPU206.

CPU206向把所取得的位置信息的属性保存在PROM205中的图像检索程序传递信息的同时,经由LCD控制单元208,在输入输出单元209的显示单元211上如图10那样显示取得的位置信息的属性。 CPU206 simultaneously transmitting information to the image retrieval program attribute of the position information stored in the acquired PROM205 is, via the LCD control unit 208, the display unit 211 on the input-output unit 209 as position information display attribute acquired 10 .

图IO是取得并显示GPS、站ID、字符这些全部位置信息属性的例子,既可以不显示未能够取得的位置属性信息,也可以区别显示所取得的位置信息属性和未取得的位置信息属性。 FIG IO request is made and an example GPS, the station ID, character all of these position information attribute display, either may not display the location attribute information has not been able to achieve, and may be the difference between the position of the information properties obtained and the position information of the property is not achieved.

上述『属性」在图像数据中添加了GPS信息时,是rGPSJ , 在各便携终端上添加了相对应的基站ID时,是r站IDJ ,在以字符数据添加了住址或者地名时,是「字符J 。 When the above-mentioned "attribute" add GPS information in the image data, is rGPSJ, adding the base station corresponding to the ID is r stand IDJ on each of the portable terminal, when the character data is added to address or place name, a "character J.

接着,操作便携终端3的操作单元210,在图IO所示的设定画面中,对于所取得的属性信息中用于图像检索的属性,由操作单元210 选择所希望的检索属性,通过按压决定按钮设定检索属性(S607)。 Next, operation of the portable terminal 210 of the operation unit 3, the setting screen shown in FIG IO, the attribute information for the acquired property for the image retrieval, the operation unit selects the desired attributes are retrieved 210, by pressing the decision button to set the retrieval attribute (S607).

但是,考虑到由于基站ID有在每个提供便携电话通信的服务公司并不相同的情况,因此根据公司,基站ID的格式或者显示基站ID 的范围不同,从用户持有的便携终端3不能够把其它公司的基站ID 指定为检索条件(不能够发送)。 However, taking into account that there is provided a base station ID of portable telephone communication service company is not the same in each case, depending on the format and therefore the company, or to display a different base station ID of the base station ID from the portable terminal 3 can not be held by a user the other base station's ID is specified as the search condition (not transmit capable).

因此,需要判别图像摄像装置2的存储介质311中保存的图像数据的标题部分上添加的基站ID与便携终端3的种类持有的基站ID是否是相同种类。 Therefore, the base station determines whether the mobile terminal ID and base station ID added to the header portion of the image stored in the storage medium 311 of the imaging apparatus 2 in the image data of the type 3 held by the same kind.

因此,在检索条件中使用的属性是基站ID时(S608),把特别的基站ID作为识别用站ID从位置信息发送单元213发送(S609)。 Therefore, the attribute used in the search condition is when the base station ID (S608), the particular base station ID with the station ID as identification transmitted (S609) from the position information transmitting unit 213. 该基站ID用使用者进行图像检索时的基站ID发送。 When the base station ID of the base station ID transmitted image retrieval by the user.

如果从作为连接目标的图像摄像装置2接收到站ID对应信号(S610),则判别为与使用者所使用的便携终端3相对应的种类的基站ID添加到图像摄像装置2中存储的图像数据中(S611),进入到步骤S613,在接收表示没有添加与便携终端3相对应的种类的基站ID 的图像数据的消息时,显示通知不能够进行基于基站ID的检索的出错消息(S612),向使用者催促变更检索条件,返回到步骤S602,再次设定检索条件。 If the signal corresponding to the station ID (S610) receives the image pickup apparatus 2 from the connection destination, it is determined that the portable terminal 3 used by the user corresponding to the type of the base station ID added to the image data stored in the image pickup apparatus 2 in (S611), proceeds to step S613, the upon receiving a no added message image data of the base station ID and the mobile terminal 3 corresponding to the type of notification can not be performed an error message retrieval of the base station ID (S612) based on, urging the user to change the search conditions, returns to step S602, sets the search condition again.

步骤S611的判断也可以在进行摄影时与快门释放信号一起发送的位置信息上添加识别便携终端3使用的便携电话服务公司的信息, 作为位置信息该识别信息也保存在标题部分中,代替在步骤S609中发送的识别用站ID的发送,发送识别便携终端3可利用的便携电话服务公司的信息。 Adding information identifying the mobile phone service the portable terminal 3 used by the position information determination step S611 may be released during photographic shutter signal transmitted together, as the position information of the identification information is also stored in the header part, instead of the step identification of the transmitting station ID transmitted in S609, the mobile terminal 3 transmits the identification of the mobile telephone service can use the company's information. 另外,进行蓝牙的服务发现协议(SDP),取得在图像摄像装置2的存储介质311中保存的图像数据上添加的站ID的公司信息。 Further, the Bluetooth Service Discovery Protocol (the SDP), corporate information acquired station ID added to the image data stored in the storage medium 311 of the image pickup apparatus 2.

在步骤S607中设定的检索条件除去基站ID以夕卜,或者在与利用者使用的便携终端3相对应的种类的基站ID能够使用为检索条件时, When the base station ID is removed to Xi Bu, or the portable terminal 3 used with the user type corresponding to the station ID set in step S607 can be used as a search condition search condition,

操作便携终端3的搮作单元210,输入检索的住址、地名(S613)。 Li unit for operation of the portable terminal 3 210, the input search address, names (S613).

接着,根据所输入的地名、住址,使用便携终端3的PROM205 中保存的应用等进行位置信息-属性变换(S614)。 Next, the input place name, address, and other applications using the mobile terminal 3 stored in PROM205 location information - attribute conversion (S614). 位置信息-属性变换把在步骤S613中输入的地名、住址变换为所设定的位置信息的属性的信息。 Converting the input information attribute names in step S613, the address information is converted into the position of the set of attributes - the location information. 而且,位置关联信息发送单元213把该信息作为检索条件, 向图像摄像装置2发送(S615 )。 Furthermore, position-related information sending unit 213 as the search condition information, sending (S615) to the image pickup apparatus 2.

例如,在步骤S607中,把检索属性设定为r GPS」,在步骤S613 中输入了r东京塔」时,变换为r东京塔」所处的纬度和经度信息, 位置关联信息发送单元213把该绵度和经度信息向图像摄像装置2发送。 For example, in step S607, the attribute is set to retrieve the GPS r "is inputted when r Tokyo Tower", is converted into latitude and longitude information r Tokyo Tower "which in step S613, the position-related information sending unit 213 the cotton and longitude information to the image pickup apparatus 2 transmits. 在基站ID的情况下,从类似基站ID地图的图中取得覆盖r东京塔J的基站ID,位置关联信息发送单元213发送所取得的基站ID。 In the case where the base station ID, the base station ID acquisition Tokyo Tower J cover r from the base station ID map similar to FIG, position-related information transmitting unit 213 transmits the obtained base station ID. 既可以由应用程序执行位置信息-属性变换,也可以由硬件进行处理。 Location information may be performed by the application - attribute conversion process may be performed by hardware. 另外,既可以由便携终端3持有经度和炜度信息或者基站ID地图等各种数据库,也可以经由中继站4从服务器5取得。 Further, both of the hold Wei and longitude information or base station ID from the map database, and other portable terminals 3, 4 can be acquired from the server 5 via the relay station. 把通过位置信息-属性变换所变换了的检索信息向作为连接目标的图像摄像装置2发送,根据该检索条件图像摄像装置2进行了检索。 The position information - transmitting the converted attribute search information converted to an image pickup apparatus 2 is connected to a target, the retrieval 2 is a search condition according to the image pickup apparatus. 其结果,通过从图像摄像装置2接收可以得到的所希望的图像(S616),进行图像检索。 As a result, the desired image from the imaging apparatus 2 receives an image can be obtained (S616), image retrieval.

其次,说明图像摄像装置一侧的处理的具体例子。 Next, a specific example of processing of the image pickup apparatus side.

图7是表示在本实施例中,根据来自便携终端3的指示进行检索的图像摄像装置2 —侧的处理动作的流程图。 FIG 7 is a diagram in the present embodiment, the image pickup apparatus 2 according to the retrieval instruction from the mobile terminal 3 - flowchart illustrating processing operation side.

图像摄像装置2在与便携终端3无线连接,接受了检索请求以后, 图像检索条件取得单元309如果经过蓝牙无线单元313,接收到便携终端3在步骤S602中设定、在步骤S604、 605中发送的表示检索条件信息(S701),则CPU307根据接收的信息,判断是进行基于位置信息的检索,还是进行基于时间信息或者关鍵字的检索(S702 )。 The image pickup apparatus 2 is connected to the radio portable terminal 3, after receiving the search request, the image acquisition unit 309 if the search condition via a Bluetooth wireless unit 313, the portable terminal 3 is received in step S602 is set, transmitted in step S604, the 605 represents the search condition information (S701,), the CPU307 information received, judgment is carried out based on the positional information retrieval, or retrieval (S702) based on time information or keyword. 在请求基于位置信息的检索时,图像检索单元312读取存储介质311中保存的图像数据中的标题所包含的位置信息的属性(S703)。 Attribute information in the location request retrieval based on position information, the image data stored in the image retrieval unit 312 reads the storage medium 311 included in the header (S703).

在检索条件是「位置信息」时的属性是f GPS」、「站ID J 、 In the search condition attributes of "location information" is a f GPS "," station ID J,

住址、地名等的「字符」,在存储介质311中具有添加了上述属性的图像数据时(S704),对于作为连接目标的便携终端3,位置属性信息发送单元310经由蓝牙无线单元313发送添加在图像数据中的位置信息的属性(S705)。 Address, names like "character", in the storage medium 311 has been added when the image data of the attribute (S704), for a mobile terminal connected to the target 3, the location attribute information transmitting unit 310, 313 transmits added via Bluetooth wireless unit attribute information of the position of the image data (S705). 例如,在存储介质311中保存的图像数据中作为位置信息仅添加GPS信息时,作为属性信息发送「GPS」,当存在添加了GPS信息的图像数据和添加了基站ID的图像数据时,或者在一个图像数据中添加了GPS和基站ID时,作为属性信息发送「 GPS J 和r站lD」。 For example, image data stored in the storage medium 311 when adding only GPS information, transmitted as the position information as the attribute information "GPS", when there is added when the image data and adding the image data of the base station ID, GPS information, or when the image data is added to a GPS and a base station ID, it transmits "J GPS station and r lD" as the attribute information. 当然,如果存在添加了住址、地名等字符数据的图像数据,则发送「字符J 。 Of course, if there is the added image data address, place names and other character data is sent "character J.

在从作为连接目标的便携终端3接收了识别用站ID时(S706 ), 参照存储介质311保存的图像数据的标题部分,图像检索单元312判断是否是与保存的基站ID相同的格式(S707 )。 Upon receiving the identification station ID from a mobile terminal a connection target 3 header portion (S706), referring to the storage medium 311 stored in the image data, the image retrieval unit 312 determines whether the base station ID stored in the same format (S707) . 判断方法依赖于应用,但也可以使用站ID之间的差分信息,还可以根据识别不同公司的ID的某些符号进行判断。 Determination method depending on the application, difference information may be used between the station ID, it may be determined in accordance with certain identification symbol ID of the different companies.

添加了相同格式的基站ID的图像数据如果有一片,则通过发送表示具有添加了与便携终端3相对应的种类的基站ID的图像数据的站ID对应信号,通知能够按照连接目标的便携终端3使用的种类的基站ID进行检索(S708),在没有添加了相对应种类的基站ID的图像数据时,发送催促使用者变更检索条件的消息(S713)。 Adds the base station ID the same format of the image data, if there is one, by sending represents an added station the image data with the portable terminal 3 corresponding to the type of the base station ID corresponding to the ID signal, a notification can be a terminal 3 in accordance with the connected portable object when using the type of base station ID is retrieved (S708), without the addition of image data corresponding to the type of the base station ID, it transmits a message urging a user to change a search condition (S713). 另外该发送数据依赖于应用,然而也可以是如果单纯地是O则为不可对应,如果是1则为可对应这样的数据。 Also the transmission data depending on the application, but may be, if not simply be compared with the corresponding O, if it is 1, may correspond to such data.

另一方面,在没有接收到识别用站ID,或者在步骤S708中接收了站ID对应信号以后,在接收了便携终端在步骤S615中发送的检索信息时(S709),参照存储介质311中保存的图像数据的标题部分, 图像检索单元312比较并检索是否存在包括一致的位置信息的图像数据(S710)。 On the other hand, after the identification is not received by the station ID, or receive a signal corresponding to the station ID in step S708, the portable terminal stores the received (S709), referring to the storage medium 311 at step S615, the retrieval information transmission header portion of the image data, the image retrieval unit 312 retrieves whether there is a comparison and consistent image data including position information (S710). 在存在与检索条件一致的所希望的图像数据时(S711), 把该图像数据发送到便携终端3 (S712)。 When the search condition is consistent with the presence of the desired image data (S711), transmits the image data to the portable terminal 3 (S712). 在没有该图像数据时,发送向利用者通知其含义的消息(S713)。 In the absence of the image data, sending a notification message to the user of the meaning (S713).
