This paper presents research on a robust technique for texture-based image retrieval in multimedia museum collections. The aim is to be able to use a query image patch containing a single texture to retrieve images containing an area with similar texture to that in the query. The feature extractor used to build the feature vectors is based on an improved version of the discrete wavelet frames (DWF), proposed elsewhere. In order to utilise the feature extractor on real scene image datasets, a block-oriented decomposition technique, termed the multiscale sub-image matching method, is presented. The multiscale method, together with the DWF, provide an efficient content-based retrieval technique without the need for segmentation. The algorithms are tested on a range of databases of texture images as well as on real museum image collections. Promising results are reported.
