This paper proposes a new approach to improve similarity queries with diversity, the Diversity and Visually-Interactive method (DiVI), which employs Visual Data Mining techniques in Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) systems. DiVI empowers the user to understand how the measures of similarity and diversity affect their queries, as well as increases the relevance of CBIR results according to the user judgment. An overview of the image distribution in the database is shown to the user through multidimensional projection. The user interacts with the visual representation changing the projected space or the query parameters, according to his/her needs and previous knowledge. DiVI takes advantage of the users' activity to transparently reduce the semantic gap faced by CBIR systems. Empirical evaluation show that DiVI increases the precision for querying by content and also increases the applicability and acceptance of similarity with diversity in CBIR systems.
