Efficient and Robust Retrieval by Shape Content through Curvature Scale Space [chapter]

Farzin Mokhtarian, Sadegh Abbasi, Josef Kittler
1998 Series on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering  
Since shape similarity is a subjective issue, in order to evaluate the method, we asked a number of volunteers to perform similarity retrieval based on shape on a randomly selected small database.  ...  While a complex boundary is represented by about ve pairs of integer values, an e ective indexing method based on the aspect ratio of the CSS image, eccentricity and circularity is used to narrow down  ...  Most proposed content based database systems aim to retrieve a small set of candidate images which include the desired image.  ...

Generic naming in generative, constraint-based design

Vasilis Capoyleas, Xiangping Chen, Christoph M Hoffmann
1996 Computer-Aided Design  
In generative, constraint-based design, users graphically select shape elements of design instances in order to specify shape operations that have generic intent.  ...  We discuss techniques for naming algorithmically and generically the identi ed geometric instance, and report on our experience with implementing these techniques.  ...  We assume that the solution of a 2D sketch, based on speci ed geometric constraints, is the one the user intended.  ...

Indexing shapes in image databases using the centroid–radii model

Kian-Lee Tan, Beng Chin Ooi, Lay Foo Thiang
2000 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
In content-based image retrieval systems, the content of an image such as color, shapes and textures are used to retrieve images that are similar to a query image.  ...  Most of the existing work focus on the retrieval eectiveness of using content for retrieval, i.e., study the accuracy (in terms of recall and precision) of using dierent representations of content.  ...  that the user has painted on some sketching tool.  ...

The generalization of the R-transform for invariant pattern representation

Thai V. Hoang, Salvatore Tabbone
2012 Pattern Recognition  
This paper revisits the problem of Radon image utilization with a generic view on a popular Radon transform-based transform and pattern descriptor, the R-transform and R-signature, bringing in a class  ...  The stability of dominant direction encoding by the generic R-transform and the superiority of the generic R-signature over existing invariant pattern descriptors on grayscale and binary noisy datasets  ...  Most of the existing methods do not allow invariance to all RST, they usually require normalizations for the unavailability of any of RST.  ...
