Extracting Representative Image from Web Page

Najlah Gali, Andrei Tabarcea, Pasi Fränti

Abstract

A web page typically contains a blend of information. For a particular user, only informative data such as main content and representative images are considered useful, while non-informative data such as advertisements and navigational banners are not. In this work, we focus on selecting a representative image that would best represent the content of a web page. Existing techniques rely on prior knowledge of website specific templates and on text body. We extract all images, analyze and rank them according to their features and functionality in the web page. We select the highest scored image as the representative image. Our method is fully automated, template independent, and not limited to a certain type of web pages.
