The use of color information for image retrieval has been used widely in many content-based retrieval system with some success. However, histogram-based color retrieval techniques su er from a lack of important spatial knowledge. We discuss a technique of integrating color information with spatial knowledge to obtain an overall impression of the image. The technique involves three steps: the selection of a set of representative colors, the analysis of spatial information of the selected colors…

TLDR
A preliminary evaluation of three such color-spatial retrieval techniques-the signature-based technique, the partition-based algorithm and the cluster-based method are presented and they are implemented and compared on their retrieval effectiveness and retrieval efficiency.
An Evaluation of Color-Spatial Retrieval Techniques for Large Image Databases
TLDR
An experimental evaluation of three color-spatial retrieval techniques—the signature-based technique, the partition-based algorithm and the cluster-based method are presented and can serve as guidelines in selecting a suitable technique and designing a new technique.
Content-based similarity retrieval of images based on spatial color distributions
TLDR
Results show that the proposed content-based image retrieval system can effectively capture spatial color information and retrieve similar appearance images in comparison with the single histogram method.
Color-Based Pseudo Object Model for Image Retrieval with Relevance Feedback
TLDR
A relevance feedback technique is developed that uses the pseudo object information from relevant images to enhance subsequent retrieval performance and the use of color coherent vector (CCV) as the basic model for retrieval.
Integrating color and spatial information for content-based image retrieval in large image database
TLDR
Experimental evidence suggests that this new color- Spatial histogram outperform not only the traditional color histogram method but also the other color-spatial histograms methods for image retrieval.
Relevance feedback techniques for color-based image retrieval
TLDR
This paper describes two techniques for image retrieval with relevance feedback (RF), which uses machine learning algorithms to extract significant color intervals and build the decision tree from the relevant image set to support effective RF.
Color and spatial feature for content-based image retrieval
TLDR
A content-based retrieval method which obviates the need to describe certain contents of an image to be archived and retrieved and computes image features automatically from a given image and they can be used to archive and/or retrieve images.
Fast image retrieval using color-spatial information
TLDR
An image retrieval system that employs both the color and spatial information of images to facilitate the retrieval process and a multi-tier indexing mechanism called the Sequenced Multi-Attribute Tree (SMAT).

TLDR
The proposed color-spatial approach employs a filtering mechanism that employs a simple similarity measure to prune away irrelevant images quickly, before computing the more complex similarity measure on potential candidate images.
Fusion-Based Method for Content Based Image Retrieval

TLDR
The facet model is used to accomplish step edge detection and the Marr-Hildreth zero crossing of the Laplacian operator is found that it is the best performer; next is the Prewitt gradient operator.
Analysis of natural scenes.
TLDR
Work performed on two aspects of the scene analysis process are segmentation, and the treatment of occlusions, shadows, and highlights, which play an important role in a model for a general vision system.
Region extraction using convergent evidence
TLDR
Scenes consisting of spatially compact regions which contrast with their surrounds can be segmented by extracting connected components of above-threshold values whose borders match the positions of edges, illustrating how the redundancy of different information sources aids segmentation.
A feature-integration theory of attention
TLDR
A new hypothesis about the role of focused attention is proposed, which offers a new set of criteria for distinguishing separable from integral features and a new rationale for predicting which tasks will show attention limits and which will not.
Data Structures and Pattern Recognition
TLDR
The concept of data structures is a continuation of the initial notion of “feature” from statistical pattern recognition—that is, a simple clue helpful in decision-making—to include multilevel or hierarchical classification processes: “understanding”.
