Content-Based Image Database
Funded by National Science Foundation: IRI-9529045
Methods are being developed to extract both low-level and high-level image features for use in indexing and retieval of images and videos. Images from two specific application areas are being considered: color photographs and skin cancer images. First the geometry and color of images are corrected, then they are segmented to regions, each corresponding to an object or a part of it. Finally, the properties of the image regions are quantified to derive the image features.
