Paper Abstract

Content-based image retrieval has recently become one of the most active research areas, due to the massive increase in the amount and complexity of digitized data being stored, transmitted, and accessed. We present here a prototype implementation of DRAWSEARCH, an image retrieval by content system, which uses color and shape (and texture in the near future) features to index and retrieve images. The system, currently being tested and improved, is designed to increase interactivity with users posing queries over the Internet and avails of a Java client for query by sketch. It also implements relevance feedback to allow users to dynamically refine queries. Experiments show that the proposed approach can greatly reduce the user's effort to compose a query, while capturing the needed information with greater precision.
