Shape (object) description consists a key part of image content description in MPEG-7. Most of existing shape descriptors are usually either application dependent or non-robust, making them undesirable for generic shape description. In this paper, an Enhanced Generic Fourier Descriptor (EGFD) is presented to overcome the drawbacks of existing shape representation techniques. The EGFD is obtained based on our previously proposed Generic Fourier Descriptor (GFD). It is acquired by deriving GFD
