Experiments in Retrieving Natural Textures

Part of the Computational Imaging and Vision book series (CIVI, volume 16)


In this chapter we introduce a particular measure of similarity between two textures and use it for a query-by-image retrieval of image textures. The measure is deduced from the Gibbs models of Eqs. (2.3) and (2.10) and is based on the model parameters that are learnt as described in Chapters 3 and 4. Most of these results were initially presented in (Jain and Gimel’farb, 1995; Gimel’farb and Jain, 1996).
