Application of content based image retrieval in digital image search system

Syamsul Yakin, Tasrif Hasanuddin, Nia Kurniati


Multimedia data is growing rapidly in the current digital era, one of which is digital image data. The increasing need for a large number of digital image datasets makes the constraints faced eventually drain a lot of time and cause the process of image description to be inconsistent. Therefore, a method is needed in processing the data, especially in searching digital image data in large image dataset to find image data that are relevant to the query image. One of the proposed methods for searching information based on image content is content based image retrieval (CBIR). The main advantage of the CBIR method is automatic retrieval process, compared to traditional keyword. This research was conducted on a combination of the HSV color histogram methods and the discrete wavelet transform to extract color features and textures features, while the chi-square distance technique was used to compare the test images with images into a database. The results have showed that the digital image search system with color and texture features have a precision value of 37.5% - 100%, with an average precision value of 80.71%, while the percentage accuracy is 93.7% - 100% with an average accuracy is 98.03%.
