Region-based color image indexing and retrieval

  title={Region-based color image indexing and retrieval},
  author={Yiannis Kompatsiaris and Evagelia Triantafillou and Michael G. Strintzis},
In this paper a region-based color image indexing and retrieval algorithm is presented. As a basis for the indexing, a novel K-Means segmentation algorithm is used, modified so as to take into account the coherence of the regions. A new color distance is also defined for this algorithm. Based on the extracted regions, characteristic features are estimated using color, texture and shape information. An important and unique aspect of the algorithm is that, in the context of similarity-based… CONTINUE READING
