The indices obtained from tree-structured vector quantization have two capabilities. First, they can provide image with different resolutions which gives an hierarchical order image based on the closeness of image blocks. Second, image blocks indices, depending on the tree depth, give the characteristics of neighboring pixels of an image. These indices characteristics have ben used in generating a feature vector which shows the image clusters in different resolutions with the capability of giving information about the neighboring pixels characteristics including edges or smooth image areas. This method has been compared with other previous image retrieval scheme based on vector quantization.
