The need for content-based access to image and video information from media archives has captured the attention of researchers in recent years. Research efforts have led to the development of methods that provide access to image and video data. These methods have their roots in pattern recognition. The methods are used to determine the similarity in the visual information content extracted from low level features. These features are then clustered for generation of database indices. This paper presents a comprehensive survey on the use of these pattern recognition methods which enable image and video retrieval by content.
