One of the content based image retrieval techniques is the shape based technique which allows users to ask for objects similar in shape to a query object. We propose a novel method for shape representation and similarity measure which we call the grid based method and evaluate its performance by comparing it with two popular methods, namely, the Fourier descriptors method and the moment invariants method. The comparative study is done by performing the same queries on the same database for all… CONTINUE READING
