Sajjanhar, Atul, Lu, Guojun and Zhang, Dengsheng 2004, Multi-scale analysis of connectivity for image retrieval, in ICIG'04 : Proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on Image and Graphics, IEEE Computer Society, Los Alamitos, Calif., pp. 204-207.
Previously, we proposed the concept of connectivity to obtain discriminating shape descriptors. In this paper, we use connectivity to obtain superior distance histograms for multi-scale images. Experiments are performed to evaluate the distance histograms, based on connectivity, for shape-based retrieval of multi-scale images. Item S8 within the MPEG-7 still images content set is used for performing experiments. Experimental results show that the proposed method enhances retrieval performance significantly.
