For some time now, image retrieval approaches have been developed that use low-level features, such as colour histograms, edge distributions and texture measures. What has been lacking in image retrieval approaches is the development of general methods for more structured object recognition. This paper describes in detail a general hierarchical image classifier approach, and illustrates the ease with which it can be trained to find objects in a scene. To further illustrate the wide capabilities of this approach, results from its application to particle picking in biology and Vietnamese art image retrieval are listed.

3 citations in Scopus
Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
