On The Design of a Color Image Retrieval Method Based on Combined Color Descriptors and Features

This article presents a Color Image Retrieval method based on Combined Color Descriptions and Features, which is called the CIRCCODF method hereafter. A main contribution of the article is that the method first devises a modified- color-feature-extraction algorithm, called Image Vector (IV). Then, another color features, Color Layout Descriptor (CLD), which is used in the MPEG-7, is selected. Subsequently, CLD and IV are effectively combined to represent each color image. Experimental results shows that the CIRCCODF method possesses better retrieval performance than that of the other existing schemes under considerations here.
