This study proposes an object-based image retrieval framework, called, ORF-NT, which trains a discriminative feature set for each object class and introduces a neighborhood tree for object labelling. For this purpose, initially, a large variety of features are extracted from the regions of the pre-segmented images. These features are, then, fed to a training module to select the 'important' features, suppressing. relatively less important ones for each class.
