Abstract

The article presents a software tool implemented in C++ that implements a multimedia database server. An element of originality is that along with the classical functions of a server it has a specialized module for content based retrieval. The users can execute both simple text based queries and complex visual queries, based on a query image. The server processes the images and extracts the color and texture characteristics and stores them in a new data type called IMAGE. The image color information is represented by means of color histograms resulting from the transformation of the RGB color space to HSV color space and the quantization to 166 colors. In order to represent the texture it is considered the co-occurrence matrices .To compute the dissimilitude between the images, the histogram intersection has been used for the color and the Euclidian distance for the texture. It is also presented the client-server communication based on SQL language.
