Invariant Image Retrieval Using Wavelet Maxima Moment

  title={Invariant Image Retrieval Using Wavelet Maxima Moment},
  author={Minh N. Do and Serge Ayer and Martin Vetterli},
Wavelets have been shown to be an effective analysis tool for image indexing due to the fact that spatial information and visual features of images could be well captured in just a few dominant wavelet coefficients. A serious problem with current wavelet-based techniques is in the handling of affine transformations in the query image. In this work, to cure the problem of translation variance with wavelet basis transform while keeping a compact representation, the wavelet transform modulus… 

Edge-Directed Invariant Shoeprint Image Retrieval

This work proposes the use of a nonorthogonal multiresolution representation to achieve shift-invariance and limits the content redundancy in the feature space to wavelet maxima points, which enables compact image representation while satisfying the requirements of the "information-preserving" rule.

The aim is an algorithm that retrieves similar images of an object irrespective of translation, rotation, reflection or re-sizing of the object, lighting conditions and the background texture.

Wavelet-Based Texture Retrieval Using Generalized

A statistical view of the texture retrieval problem is presented by combining the two related tasks, namely feature extraction and similarity measurement, into a joint modeling and classification scheme, which leads to a new wavelet-based texture retrieval method that is based on the accurate modeling of the marginal distribution of wavelet coefficients using generalized Gaussian density.

Wavelet-based image indexing techniques with partial sketch retrieval capability

This paper describes WBIIS (Wavelet-Based Image Indexing and Searching), a new image indexing and retrieval algorithm with partial sketch image searching capability for large image databases that performs much better in capturing coherence of image, object granularity, local color/texture, and bias avoidance than traditional color layout algorithms.

Image Indexing Using Moments and Wavelets

Two techniques to improve the performance of the basic histogram/moment-based technique by using orthogonal Legendre moments for representing histograms and comparing the histograms of wavelet coefficients at different scales are proposed.

A complete wavelet-based image storage and indexing system that takes account of the color, brightness, texture, frequency, and spatial information of a given query image is proposed in this research.

Fast multiresolution image querying

An “image querying metric” is introduced that operates on how many significant wavelet coefficients the query has in common with potential targets, and includes parameters that can be tuned, using a statistical analysis, to accommodate the kinds of image distortions found in different types of image queries.

Two new color indexing techniques are described, one of which is a more robust version of the commonly used color histogram indexing and the other which is an example of a new approach tocolor indexing that contains only their dominant features.
