In this paper, a new algorithm using directional local extrema patterns meant for content-based image retrieval application is proposed. The standard local binary pattern (LBP) encodes the relationship between reference pixel and its surrounding neighbors by comparing gray-level values. The proposed method differs from the existing LBP in a manner that it extracts the directional edge information based on local extrema in 0 $$^{\circ }$$ , 45 $$^{\circ }$$ , 90 $$^{\circ }$$ , and 135 $$^{\circ… CONTINUE READING
