Geospatial content-based image retrieval (CBIR) systems can be used to query for visually similar images by identifying similar patterns between a query image and those in the database. When several different classes of features are used, some queries require that each class should be given a different degree of weight; to this end, CBIR indexes are built for each class of features. This paper proposes an approach for weighting multiple indexes in a geospatial CBIR system by mining information from user feedback. After a small number of iterations of relevance feedback and data mining, index weights can be determined dynamically per query. Using this technique geospatial retrieval system precision of results increased from 70% to 79% after 5 iterations of feedback.
