Visual database systems require efficient indexing to facilitate fast access to the images and video sequences in the database. Recently, several content-based indexing methods for image and video based on spatial relationships, color, texture, shape, sketch, object motion, and camera parameters have been re-ported in the literature. The goal of this paper is to provide a critical survey on image and video indexing technique in both pixel and compressed domain.
