In these days, multimedia data is transmitted and
processed in compressed format. Due to the decoding procedure and
filtering for edge detection, the feature extraction process of MPEG-7
Edge Histogram Descriptor is time-consuming as well as
computationally expensive. To improve efficiency of compressed
image retrieval, we propose a new edge histogram generation
algorithm in DCT domain in this paper. Using the edge information
provided by only two AC coefficients of DCT coefficients, we can get
edge directions and strengths directly in DCT domain. The
experimental results demonstrate that our system has good
performance in terms of retrieval efficiency and effectiveness.
