  abstract  = {This paper deals with the application for contentbased
image retrieval to extract color feature from natural images
stored in the image database by segmenting the image through
clustering. We employ a class of nonparametric techniques in which
the data points are regarded as samples from an unknown probability
density. Explicit computation of the density is avoided by using the
mean shift procedure, a robust clustering technique, which does not
require prior knowledge of the number of clusters, and does not
constrain the shape of the clusters. A non-parametric technique for
the recovery of significant image features is presented and
segmentation module is developed using the mean shift algorithm to
segment each image. In these algorithms, the only user set parameter
is the resolution of the analysis and either gray level or color images
are accepted as inputs. Extensive experimental results illustrate
excellent performance.},
