Content-based image retrieval (CBIR) uses features that can be extracted from the images themselves. In previous work we have shown that using more than one representation of the images in a collection can improve the results presented to a user without changing the underlying feature extraction or search technologies French, J.C. et al., (2003). In this paper we show that we can also merge the results of multiple CBIR systems to achieve even greater retrieval effectiveness again without changing the underlying CBIR technology. We also present an example of this combined approach and show that it can dramatically improve retrieval effectiveness in content-based image retrieval systems.
