Interactive Image Retrieval with Wavelet Features
This paper presents an iterative Content Based Image Retrival(CBIR) system with Relevance Feedback (RF), in which M-band wavelet features are used as representation of images. The pixels are clustered using Fuzzy C-Means (FCM) clustering algorithm to obtain an image signature and Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD) is used as a distance measure. Fuzzy entropy based feature evaluation mechanism is used for automatic computation of revised feature importance and similarity distance at the end of each iteration. The performance of the algorithm is tested on standard large multi-class image databases and compared with MPEG-7 visual features.
