Most of the available image search tools, such as Google we search using some features of images, and these features Images and Yahoo! Image search, are based on textual annotation of images. In these tools, images are manually annotated with are the keywords.

At this moment unfortunately there are not keywords and then retrieved using text-based search methods. The goal the non-textual information of a sample image. What can be of CBIR is to extract visual content of an image automatically, the reason?

One reason may be that the text is a human like color, texture, or shape. At the images the which is based on a free hand sketch Sketch based image huge number of data and the management of those cause the retrieval — SBIR. With the help of the existing methods, describe problem. The processing space is enormous. The used descriptor is constructed after databases. The user has a drawing area where he can draw such special sequence of preprocessing steps that the transformed those sketches, which are the base of the retrieval method.

In some cases we can recall sample databases showed good results. In the following that the sketch based system allows users an intuitive access to search-tools. Such a investigation. Similar victims in forensics and law enforcement. A possible application applications are implemented in [9], [10], [11]. The user has to make a sketch of the analog circuit, and the system can provide many similar circuits from the database. In these systems the number of data had to be managed, processed and stored.

The It was also textual and visual information. Parallelly of the images were divided into grids, and the color and texture fea- appearance and quick evolution of computers an increasing tures were determined in these grids.

The applications of grids measure of data had to be managed. The growing of data were also used in other algorithms, for example in the edge storages and revolution of internet had changed the world.

The histogram descriptor EHD method [4]. Another research approach methods. Two questions can come up. In these the keywords. And the second is an image can be well cases the purpose of the investment is the determination of represented by keywords.

The human is able to recall visual II. Since the human tem is presented. The retrieval has to be robust in contrast of illumination and difference of point of view. The global structure of the system. The global structure of the system is shown in Fig. The Purpose of the System in which the data of preprocessed images is stored in the form of feature vectors — this is the off-line part of the program.

This Even though the measure of research in sketch-based image part carries out the computation intensive tasks, which has to retrieval increases, there is no widely used SBIR system. Our be done before the program actual use.

The other phase is the goal is to develop a content-based associative search engine, retrieval process, which is the on-line unit of the program. The user has a drawing area, where he can point of view.

It is shown in Fig. First the user draws a draw all shapes and moments, which are expected to occur in sketch or loads an image.

The retrieval results or the appropriate representative has been loaded, the retrieval are grouped by color for better clarity. Our most important task process is started. In our system the iteration of the utilization process is indexed database. As a result of searching a result set is possible, by the current results looking again, thus increasing raised, which appears in the user interface on a systematic the precision.

Based on the result set we can again retrieve using another descriptor with different nature. This represents one B. The Global Structure of Our System using loop. The system building blocks include a preprocessing subsys- tem, which eliminates the problems caused by the diversity C. The Preprocessing Subsystem of images. Using the feature vector generating subsystem our The system was designed for databases containing relatively image can be represented by numbers considering a given simple images, but even in such cases large differences can property.

In addition, interface between the database and the program. Based on the some images may be noisier, the extent and direction of feature vectors and the sample image the retrieval subsystem illumination may vary see Fig. In order to avoid it, a multi- step preprocessing mechanism precedes the generation of descriptors. The input of the preprocessing subsystem is one image, and the output is the respective processed result set see Fig. The main problem during preprocessing of the color images Fig.

The steps of preprocessing. The textures and changes generate unnecessary and variable-length information related to the preparation is gathered, as the edges [12]. It gives very of recording unit. In addition, we may need more information valuable results, if a textured object of little color stands in a of color depth, resolution, image dimension, vertical and homogenous background. For storage the large images are minimizes the number of the displayed colors.

If only some reduced. The data is stored in a global, not scattered place in intensity values represent the images, then according to our the hard disk. As an approximate method the The retrieval subsystem contacts the database, which provides uniform and minimum variance quantization [19] were used. For optimization it is already loaded at startup After the transformation step edges are detected, of which the to a variable, data structure.

In addition, statistics can be taken due to a variety of criteria. The Displaying Subsystem content of images are made. Basically three different methods Because drawings are the basis of the retrieval, thus a were used, namely the edge histogram descriptor EHD [4], drawing surface is provided, where they can be produced. Also the histogram of oriented gradients HOG [2] and the scale a database is needed for search, which also must be set before invariant feature transform SIFT [16].

In case of large result set the systematic arrange- Our system works with databases containing simple images.

The methods in our system cannot work without handled. If the description method does not provide perfect parameters, and therefore an opportunity is provided to set error handling, that is expected to be robust to the image these as well. Our task is to increase this The number of results to show in the user interface is an safety. Since own hand-drawn images are retrieved, an user interface.

This number depends on the resolution of information gap arises between retrieved sketch and color the monitor, and forasmuch the large resolution monitors are images of database. While an image is rich of information, widely used, so this number can move between 20 and If the retrieval effectiveness is worse by only tremes, so that we keep only the relevant information of a given ratio, the image can be included in the display list.

As we wrote in the previous subsection, the images of database were transformed into edge images, so information was lost, however. In order to discover the implicit content the 2- dimensional distance transform [5] was used. The Retrieval Subsystem As the feature vectors are ready, the retrieval can start. The Database Management Subsystem The images and their descriptors are stored and the neces- sary mechanism for subsequent processing is provided.

This is the database management subsystem, which consists of three parts, the storage, the retrieval, and the data manipulation modules [3]. The storage module provides images, information and the associated feature vectors are uploaded to the database. The Fig. The implemented user interface.

Some sample images of Flickr database. Recognition Image Database was used, which contains realistic objects. The images are stored in TIF format with 24 bits. This database is most often used in computer and psychology studies.

Some images of this Fig. Another test database was the Flickr This database obtained clusters are displayed.

Sketch4match — Content-based image retrieval system using sketches

Skip to search form Skip to main content You are currently offline. Some features of the site may not work correctly. The content based image retrieval CBIR is one of the most popular, rising research areas of the digital image processing. Content-based image retrieval information systems use information extracted from the content of query. In these tools, images are manually annotated with keywords and then retrieved using textbased search methods. The goal of CBIR is to extract visual content of an image automatically, like color, texture, or shape. View PDF.


Sketch4Match – Content-based Image Retrieval System Using Sketches

This paper aims to introduce the problems and challenges concerned with the design and creation of CBIR systems, which is based on a free hand sketch Sketched based image retrieval-SBIR. This analysis led us to studying the usability of a method for computing dissimilarity between user-produced pictorial queries and database images according to features extracted from Gray-Level Co-occurrence Matrix GLCM automatically. CBIR is generally characterized by the methods that consumes less time. Hence fast content — based image retrieval is a need of the day especially image mining for shapes, as image database is growing exponentially in size with time. In this paper, texture features extracted from GLCM, tested, and investigated on different standard databases is proposed, it exhibits invariant to rotation.
