Texture retrieval based on a non-parametric measure for multivariate distributions
In the present study, an efficient strategy for retrieving texture images from large texture databases is introduced and studied within a distributional-statistical framework. Our approach incorporates the multivariate Wald-Wolfowitz test (WW-test), a non-parametric statistical test that measures the similarity between two different sets of multivariate data, which is utilized here for comparing texture distributions. By summarizing the texture information using standard feature extraction methodologies, the similarity measure provides a comprehensive estimate of the match between different images based on graph theory. The proposed “distributional metric” is shown to handle efficiently the texture space dimensionality and the limited sample size drawn from a given image. The experimental results, from the application on a typical texture database, clearly demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach over other texture distribution (dis)similarity metrics. In addition, its perfor...
