Abstract
We study the problem of retrieving images using a small template. The goal is to allow a user to search for images containing a pattern similar to the template, adding to the capability of a search engine. We propose to employ a segmentation-based approach. As a specific example, we introduce a quadtree segmentation technique for textured images and a distance measure, Sum of Minimum Distance, suitable for template-based image retrieval applications.
