Shape of an object is an important feature for image and multimedia similarity retrievals. In our previous studies we introduced a new $$boundary$$ - $$based$$ technique ( $$MBC$$ - $$based$$ ) for shape retrieval and compared its performance to other techniques. In this study, we describe in detail the basics of our $$MBC$$ - $$based$$ shape representation techniques, and we show how they support different query types. In addition, we describe two original optimization techniques that can… CONTINUE READING
