based image retrieval is the technique to retrieve similar images from a database that are visually similar to a given query image. It is an active and emerging research field in computer vision. In our proposed system, the Interest points based Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) feature descriptor is used to retrieve the relevant images from the database. The dimensionality of the HOG feature vector is reduced by Principle Component analysis (PCA). To improve the retrieval accuracy of the…

A Novel Approach for Image Retrieval using Combination of Features

The combination of local and global features for content based image retrieval, using BEMD and Harris corner detector to extract local features of images and KNN is applied for Harris corner feature to improve the retrieval accuracy.


The experimental results indicate that proposed method (Log Histogram) significantly improves Precision/Recall and Complexity of proposed method is less as compared to Global Color Histogram (GCH) and Histogram of Corners (HOC).
