Paper Abstract

Significant number of color images on the WWW and many other applications are color quantized. This paper presents a new technique for content-based retrieval of this type of color images. We introduce a technique, which compares the color contents of images by comparing the color tables of the image. An effective measure of the similarity of color tables based on a modified Hausdorff distance has been developed. Computer simulation result on retrieving three sets of colorful images are presented which demonstrated the highly effective of the method.
