At present a great deal of research is being done in different aspects of Content-Based Image Retrieval System (CBIR). Unfortunately, these aspects are mostly analysed separately. We propose how to put together vectors of features for segmented objects and a spatial relationship of the objects. To achieve this goal we have constructed a search engine taking into account multi-set data mining and object spatial relationship. Additionally, we have constructed a graphical user interface (GUI) to enable the user to build a query by image. The efficiency of our system will be evaluated in the near future. In this paper we present the search engine for our CBIR.
