Abstract: This paper describes a novel approach for retrieving images which are chromatically similar to a query image. The technique makes use of vector model from the literatures of information retrieval for image similarity match. With a properly devised colour space discretisation technique, collections of pixels having similar colour content are identified, grouped and sorted according to the proportional spread, in term of total pixels in a given image. Weights are assigned to each identified groups. The sorted data will then be stored in an ASCII file, ready for the image retrieval process. The proposed technique will be benchmarked against the histogram-based approach, which is a common approach for colour image retrieval, in term of retrieval accuracy. A standard dataset that currently contains 1338 colour images, known as Uncompressed Colour Image Database (UCID), is used for the benchmarking purpose. The proposed technique has shown an improved performance in term of retrieval accuracy over the traditional histogram-based approach.
