Image retrieval based on color histograms requires quantization of a color space. Uniform scalar quantization of each color channel is a popular method for the reduction of histogram dimensionality. With this method, however, no spatial information among pixels is considered in constructing the histograms. Vector quantization (VQ) provides a simple and effective means for exploiting spatial information by clustering groups of pixels. We propose the use of Gauss mixture vector quantization (GMVQ… CONTINUE READING
