Paper Abstract

Although global color histogram and moments have been proven to be very useful for image indexing, they do not take color-based spatial information into account. Thus when the image collection becomes very large, many false hits frequently occur. The latest work, so called spatial color indexing, attempts to characterize finer details of the color distribution. However the conventional methods have to undergo multi-step processes of partitioning and indexing the image blocks. This paper proposes an efficient image description method for image retrieval using circular scanning pattern.
