Abstract: Several applications such as fingerprint identification, biodiversity information systems, digital libraries, crime prevention, medicine, historical research, among others uses the image search system for searching similar images. The goal of the scalable image search system is to support image retrieval based on content properties such edge and texture, encoded into feature vectors. Hashing technique is used to embed high dimensional image features into hamming space. The image search can be performed in real-time based on Hamming distance of compact hash codes. An extensive experiment on flickr image dataset demonstrates the performance of the proposed methods.
Keywords: Gray-Level Co-Occurrence Matrix (GLCM), Homogeneous Texture Descriptor (HTD, The Edge Histogram Descriptor (EHD).

Scope of the Article: Image analysis and Processing
