In this paper, we present Scene Structural Matrix (SSM) and apply it to the retrieval of landscape images. The SSM captures the overall structural characteristics of the scene by indexing the geometric features of the image. A binary image tree (bintree) is used to partition the image and from which we derive multi-resolution geometric structural descriptors of the image. It is shown that SSM is particularly effective in retrieving images with strong structural features, such as landscape… CONTINUE READING
