Conference paper


The paper presents two methods of creating custom color models used in object detection in digital images. Developed methods are based on Gram-Schmidt orthonormalization procedure and can be applied in different fields of recognition (human faces, remotely sensed images, etc.). Their main advantage over other ones is the efficient description and representation of color variations.
