Paper Abstract

With the advance of multimedia technologies and the explosive expansion of the World Wide Web, the volume of image and video data increases rapidly. An efficient and effective multimedia data retrieval technique is needed. In this paper, we propose an approach based on feature points for the content-based image retrieval. The feature points extracted from the multiresolution representation of the query image and database image are first matched to determine the matching pairs. Then, the marching pairs are classified into groups. Finally, two similarity measurements based on different similarity requirements are proposed to compute the similarity degree. We perform a series of experiments to study the characteristics of this approach, and compare with the region-based approach on similar-shot sequence retrieval. The comparison shows the superiority of this approach.
