imagesearch.mzk.cz

Imagesearch.mzk.cz is web service that provides services for content based image searching. You can find your image
for within a second. You can ask whether there is an image, which is identical to yours, or you can request a set
of similar ones.

Requirements

Installation

On debian based systems you can create init script. Create file /etc/init.d/imagesearch with following content

#!/bin/bash

### BEGIN INIT INFO
# Provides:          imagesearch
# Required-Start:    docker
# Required-Stop:     docker
# Default-Start:     2 3 4 5
# Default-Stop:      0 1 6
# Short-Description: Imagesearch application
# Description:       Runs docker image.
### END INIT INFO

LOCK=/var/lock/imagesearch
CONTAINER_NAME=imagesearch
IMAGE_NAME=moravianlibrary/imagesearch.mzk.cz

case "$1" in
  start)
    if [ -f $LOCK ]; then
      echo "Imagesearch is running yet."
    else
      touch $LOCK
      echo "Starting imagesearch.."
      docker run --name $CONTAINER_NAME -p 127.0.0.1:8080:80 -v /var/imagesearch/:/data $IMAGE_NAME &
      echo "[OK] Imagesearch is running."
    fi
    ;;
  stop)
    if [ -f $LOCK ]; then
      echo "Stopping imagesearch.."
      rm $LOCK \
        && docker kill $CONTAINER_NAME \
        && docker rm $CONTAINER_NAME \
        && echo "[OK] Imagesearch is stopped."
    else
      echo "Imagesearch is not running."
    fi
    ;;
  restart)
    $0 stop
    $0 start
  ;;
  status)
    if [ -f $LOCK ]; then
      echo "Imagesearch is running."
    else
      echo "Imagesearch is not running."
    fi
  ;;
  update)
    docker pull $IMAGE_NAME
    $0 restart
  ;;
  *)
    echo "Usage: /etc/init.d/imagesearch {start|stop|restart|status|update}"
    exit 1
    ;;
esac

exit 0

After it run these commands

# chmod 755 /etc/init.d/imagesearch
# update-rc.d imagesearch defaults

Now the imagesearch service will be automatically start at server startup.

Docker container expects directory /var/imagesearch. You must create it and set owner of this directory to uid 33.

# mkdir -p /var/imagesearch
# chown 33:33 /var/imagesearch

Now you can start service by

# /etc/init.d/imagesearch start

The service listen on port 8080. Now you should install and setup apache http server, which will forward requests to docker container and it also will protect endpoints /v1/ingest and /v1/commit by password.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install apache2

In directory /etc/apache2/sites-available create file with name imagesearch.mzk.cz and with content:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName imagesearch.mzk.cz

        <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
              RewriteEngine on
              Options +FollowSymlinks

              ProxyPassMatch ^/(.*)$  http://localhost:8080/$1
              ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080
        </IfModule>

        <Location "/v1/ingest">
              AuthType Basic
              AuthName "Restricted area"
              AuthBasicProvider file
              AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/imagesearch
              Require valid-user
        </Location>

        <Location "/v1/commit">
              AuthType Basic
              AuthName "Restricted area"
              AuthBasicProvider file
              AuthUserFile /usr/local/apache/passwd/imagesearch
              Require valid-user
        </Location>


        ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/imagesearch-error.log

        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel warn

        CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/imagesearch-access.log combined
</VirtualHost>

You must create credential file /usr/local/apache/passwd/imagesearch, where your username and password will be stored.
You can create it by command:

# htpasswd -c /usr/local/apache/passwd/imagesearch yourusername

After it enable new settings and reload apache server.

# a2ensite imagesearch.mzk.cz
# /etc/init.d/apache2 reload

API

Imagesearch.mzk.cz provides several endpoints, which are described bellow. You can use them using the basic GET or POST
requests. Each response contains element status which can take values "ok" or "error".

Uploading data

For uploading data use ingest enpdoint:

/v1/ingest

Uploading is done via POST request, which has following structure:

[
  {
    "id": "example1",
    "thumbnail": "http://example.com/path/to/thumbnail1.jpg",
    "metadata": {
      "key1": "value1",
      "key2": "value2",
      "key3": "value3"
    },
    "image_url": "...",
    "image_base64": "...",
    "blockHash": "...",
    "dHash": "...",
    "gaussDHash": "...",
    "gauss2DHash": "...",
    "gaussBlockHash": "..."
  },
  {
    "id": "example2",
    "thumbnail": "http://example.com/path/to/thumbnail2.jpg",
    "metadata": {
      "key1": "value1",
      "key2": "value2",
      "key3": "value3"
    },
    "image_url": "...",
    "image_base64": "...",
    "blockHash": "...",
    "dHash": "...",
    "gaussDHash": "...",
    "gauss2DHash": "...",
    "gaussBlockHash": "..."
  }
]
  • Each record is identified by id. If you upload image with the same id, the data will be overriden.
  • Metadata element can contain arbitrary JSON value.
  • Image data can be send by several ways:
    • image_url: You can specify url, where the image can be downloaded.
    • image_base64: You can send image data in base64 format.
    • blockHash, dHash, gaussDHash, gauss2DHash, gaussBlockHash: You can compute hashes by yourselves and send their hexadecimal representations.
  • From listed methods how to upload image data you should choose only one. If you use several methods at once
    the behaviour is not defined.

Deleting data

For deleting data use also ingest enpdoint:

/v1/ingest

Deleting is done via POST request, which has following structure:

[
  {
    "id": "example1",
    "status": "deleted"
  },
  {
    "id": "example2",
    "status": "deleted"
  }
]
  • JSON is self explanatory.
  • In one POST request you can add, modify and delete data.

Commiting

After that you do some changes you must commit your newly uploaded or deleted data. This is done by endpoint:

/v1/commit

Searching

There are two endpoints you can use:

/v1/searchIdentical
/v1/seachSimilar

Search identical

You can seach identical images using both GET or POST requests.

GET
/v1/searchIdentical?blockHash=ffff816180a18239c731a381e087b8cf883df971dc01bc858003800dd80fffff&dHash=2592989844c4e0d8
/v1/searchIdentical?url=http://www.example.com/path/to/image.jpg
POST
{
  "image_base64": "..."
}

or

{
  "image_url": "..."
}

Response has form:

  {
    "data": {
        "distance": 0,
        "found": true,
        "record": {
            "id": "test",
            "metadata": {
                "numGcps": 5,
                "rmsError": 0.52
            },
            "thumbnail": "http://example.com/thumbnail.jpg"
        }
    },
    "status": "ok"
}
  • Important element is data.found, which says whether the identical image was found or not.

Search similar

You can seach similar images using both GET or POST requests.

GET
/v1/searchSimilar?gaussDHash=0f13332927217ada&count=10
  • By parameter count you can specify how many the most similar images will be returned.
POST
{
  "image_base64": "..."
}

or

{
  "image_url": "..."
}

Build and run

You can use following commands:

$ make build
$ make run
  • Persistent data are stored in directory /var/imagesearch, so you check whether it exists, or you can change it in Makefile.
  • Web service listen on port 8080, you can also change it in Makefile.
