A Comparative Study on Shape Retrieval Using Fourier Descriptors with Different Shape Signatures

  title={A Comparative Study on Shape Retrieval Using Fourier Descriptors with Different Shape Signatures},
  author={Dengsheng Zhang and Guojun Lu},
Shape is one of the most important features in Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR). Many shape representations and retrieval methods exists. However, most of those methods either do not well represent shape or are difficult to do normalization (making matching hard). Among them, methods based Fourier descriptors (FD) achieve both well representation and well normalization. Different shape signatures have been exploited to derive FDs, however, FDs derived from different signatures can have… CONTINUE READING
