Paper Abstract

This paper describes an approach to vessel classification from satellite images using content based image retrieval methodology. Content-based image retrieval is an important problem in both medical imaging and surveillance applications. In many cases the archived reference database is not fully structured, thus making content-based image retrieval a challenging problem. In addition, in surveillance applications, the query image may be affected by weather or/and geometric distortions. Our approach of content-based vessel image retrieval consists of two phases. First, we create a structured reference database, then for each new query image of a vessel we find the closest cluster of images in the structured reference database, thus identifying and classifying the vessel. Then we update the closest cluster with new query image.
