The image searching tool using category-based indexing

Wardhani, Aster W. & Thomson, Tod N. (2003) The image searching tool using category-based indexing. In APRS Workshop on Digital Image Computing, University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.



The aim of this research is to propose a new content based image retrieval (CBIR) system using categories. Different images have different characteristics and thus often require different image processing techniques. Most current CBIR systems operate on all images, without pre-sorting images into different categories. This results in limitations on retrieval performance and accuracy. Two semantic and four syntactic image categories are proposed. The category for an image is generated automatically by analysing the image for the presence of a dominant object or for correspondence to an image ‘template’. Dominant objects are obtained by performing region grouping of segmented thumbnails. The result of this research is a new Internet image retrieval and indexing system.

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.
