Book Description

This book emphasizes various image shape feature extraction methods which are necessary for image shape recognition and classification. Focussing on a shape feature extraction technique used in content-based image retrieval (CBIR), it explains different applications of image shape features in the field of content-based image retrieval. Showcasing useful applications and illustrating examples in many interdisciplinary fields, the present book is aimed at researchers and graduate students in electrical engineering, data science, computer science, medicine, and machine learning including medical physics and information technology.
