Most color indexing techniques proposed in the literature are similar: Images are represented by color histograms, and a metric on the color histogram space is used to determine the similarity of images. In this paper we determine the limits of these color indexing techniques. We propose two functions to measure the discrimination power of indexing techniques: The capacity (how many distinguishable histograms can be stored) and the maximal match number (the maximal number of retrieved images… CONTINUE READING
