Application of the Progressive Wavelet Correlation in Image Retrieving

By Igor Stojanovic, Sofija Bogdanova and Momcilo Bogdanov


In the paper we apply progressive wavelet correlation along with Fourier methods for searching and retrieving images stored in a database. The searching consists of three incremental steps, each of which quadruples the number of correlation points. The process can be halted at any stage if the intermediate results indicate that the correlation will not result in a match. We perform a series of image search experiments that cover the following scenarios: (A) the given image is present in the database; (B) copies of the given image are present but with different names; (C) similar (but not identical) images are present; and (D) the given image is not present. Experiments are performed with data bases up to 1000 images, using the Oracle database and the Matlab component Database Toolbox for operations with databases
