    Spatial Colour Matching for Content Based Retrieval and Navigation

    Challenge of Image Retrieval

    Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. 25th - 26th February 1999


    D. Dupplaw, P. Lewis & M. Dobie


    In this paper we describe two approaches for providing a versatile mechanism for retrieval and navigation using spatially related feature selections.

    As an example, we build colour histograms from images, and use a quadratic histogram match to achieve a retrieval method based on the spatial colour distribution of the images.

    Navigation is facilitated by a larger architecture, called MAVIS (Multimedia Architecture for Video, Image and Sound), which is an on-going research project to provide an integrated and networked approach to multimedia content based retrieval and navigation.

    Demonstrations are provided of the two presented retrieval methods in action.
