This paper present a wavelet-transform-based algorithm for fast and accurate retrieval of images from large image databases. We describe the architecture and the implementation of such a framework to perform a search for an image in a database. The retrieval algorithm entails a wavelet-based methodology that yields an elegant and computationally efficient implementation. This scheme matches the images directly in the wavelet domain, based on the information extracted from only a few of the wavelet coefficients. Experiments show that this novel algorithm provides highly accurate search results.
