We present a method for searching in an image database using a query image that is similar to the intended target. The query image may be a hand-drawn sketch or a (potentially low-quality) scan of the image to be retrieved. Our searching algorithm makes use of multiresolution wavelet decompositions of the query and database images. The coefficients of these decompositions are distilled into small “signatures” for each image. We introduce an “image querying metric” that operates on these… Expand
WALRUS: a similarity retrieval algorithm for image databases
TLDR
WALRUS (wavelet-based retrieval of user-specified scenes), a novel similarity retrieval algorithm that is robust to scaling and translation of objects within an image, is proposed and Experimental results on real-life data sets corroborate the effectiveness of WALR US'S similarity model. Expand

TLDR
The proposed method for searching a database for similar images guided by the image submitted by users as a query shows the improvement of the accuracy of query results against the conventional multiresolution method. Expand
Visual image query
TLDR
An alternative visual query system is introduced, which finds an image similar to a user drawn sketch, or to any other reference image, which operates in the original image space, which makes the whole algorithm intuitive and easy to understand, and enables the comparison of images sections, as well.

Efficient image retrieval with multiple distance measures
There is a growing need for the ability to query image databases based on image content rather than strict keyword search. Most current image database systems that perform query by content require aExpand

TLDR
An overview of a new framework that should help to allow these types of queries to be answered efficiently in image database systems, and a complete image retrieval system based on local color information is developed. Expand
Multiresolution image retrieval using B-splines
We propose a technique to search through large image collections. Each database image is stored as a combination of potential query terms and non-query terms. The query terms are represented byExpand

TLDR
Results indicating that querying for images using Blobworld produces higher precision than does querying using color and texture histograms of the entire image in cases where the image contains distinctive objects are presented. Expand

TLDR
To allow users to browse and search through information domains using sophisticated querying techniques that include imprecise queries, user-directed query processing, and queries that use similarity measures in order to retrieve data, new data modeling approaches are required. Expand
