Color saliency, Local descriptors, Gradient vector flow field
Salient points are locations in an image where there is a significant variation with respect to a chosen image feature. Since the set of salient points in an image capture important local characteristics of that image, they can form the basis of a good image representation for content-based image retrieval (CBIR). Salient features are generally determined from the local differential structure of images. They focus on the shape saliency of the local neighborhood. Most of these detectors are luminance based which have the disadvantage that the distinctiveness of the local color information is completely ignored in determining salient image features. To fully exploit the possibilities of salient point detection in color images, color distinctiveness should be taken into account in addition to shape distinctiveness. This paper presents a method for salient points determination based on color saliency. The color and texture information around these points of interest serve as the local descriptors of the image. In addition, the shape information is captured in terms of edge images computed using Gradient Vector Flow fields. Invariant moments are then used to record the shape features. The combination of the local color, texture and the global shape features provides a robust feature set for image retrieval. The experimental results demonstrate the efficacy of the method.
