Gaussian mixture models of texture and colour for image database retrieval Conference Paper uri icon


  • We introduce Gaussian mixture models of 'structure' and colour features in order to classify coloured textures in images, with a view to the retrieval of textured colour images from databases. Classifications are performed separately using structure and colour and then combined using a confidence criterion. We apply the models to the VisTex database and to the classification of man-made and natural areas in aerial images. We compare these models with others in the literature, and show an overall improvement in performance.
