A content based image retrieval system, called MPEG-7 Image Retrieval Refinement based On Relevance feedback (MIRROR), is developed for evaluating MPEG-7 visual descriptors and developing new retrieval algorithms. The system core is based on MPEG-7 Experimentation Mode (XM) with web-based user interface for query by image example retrieval. A new Merged Color Palette approach for MPEG-7 dominant color descriptor similarity measure and relevance feedback are also developed in this system. Several MPEG-7 visual descriptors are adopted in MIRROR for performance comparison purpose. The system can be accessed at http://www.ee.cityu.edu.hk/̃mirror/. © 2005 IEEE.
