A Fast and Efficient Image Indexing and Search System based on Color and Texture Features


Content-Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) allows to automatically extracting target images according to objective visual contents of the image itself. Representation of visual features and similarity match are important issues in CBIR. Color, texture and shape information have been the primitive image descriptors in content-based image retrieval systems. This paper presents a fast and efficient image indexing and search system based on color and texture features. The color features are represented by combines 2-D histogram and statistical moments and texture features are represented by combines the direction measure and a gray level co-occurrence matrix (GLCM). The detailed experimental analysis is carried out using precision and recall ondataset Wang. The time analysis is also performed to compare processing speeds of the proposed method with the existing similar best. The experimental results demonstrated that proposed method achieved a better image recognition, and the accuracy of classification based on this method has been significantly improved. The performance is measured in terms of recall and precision; also the obtained performances are compared with several state-of-the-art algorithms and showed that our algorithm is simple, fast, and efficient in terms of results and memory.
