Abstract: Similarity-based retrieval of images is an important task in many image database applications. A major class of usersa?? requests requires retrieving those images in the database that are spatially similar to the query image. In this thesis, we propose two spatial relation representations for iconic pictures, i.e. Intrinsic Orientation and Topological (IO&T) relation representation and Augmented Orientation Spatial Relation (AOSR) representation. Based on the proposed representations, we discuss some similarity measures for automatic picture matching and similarity retrieval in iconic image databases. Since similarity is a fuzzy concept for different users and applications, to improve the usability of a retrieval system, we involve users in the interactive retrieval process. Some indexing approaches and retrieval procedures are discussed to capture the subjective information hidden in individual usera??s feedback to fill the gap between the objective system and individual retrieval process.
