Title Perceptual Image Retrieval by Adding Color Information to the Shape Context Descriptor Type Conference Article
Year 2010 Publication 20th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Abbreviated Journal
Volume Issue Pages 1594–1597
Abstract In this paper we present a method for the retrieval of images in terms of perceptual similarity. Local color information is added to the shape context descriptor in order to obtain an object description integrating both shape and color as visual cues. We use a color naming algorithm in order to represent the color information from a perceptual point of view. The proposed method has been tested in two different applications, an object retrieval scenario based on color sketch queries and a color trademark retrieval problem. Experimental results show that the addition of the color information significantly outperforms the sole use of the shape context descriptor.
