This paper proposed a new Bessel Structure moments for image retrieval. The proposed method has rotation invariance and performs better than orthogonal Fourier-Mellin and Zernike moments in terms of represent global features. The experiments show that the feature descriptors extracting from the proposed algorithm perform better for image retrieval than conventional descriptors by comparing the retrieval accuracy with the same order.
