Preliminary Study of Extraction of Facial Geometric Measures as
Features for Content-Based Retrieval

André Oriani, Jander Moreira

Abstract. In this technical poster, we present the first results of our research on face feature detection. The main goal is to build a tool capable of producing a set of suitable data for face similarity comparisons on content-based retrieval systems. The results are still not very precise, but quite promising.

Geometric Face Model. (see subsection 2.2)



Mouth search area, its edge map and integral projection plot of the edge map. (see subsection 2.4)



Intensity profile at the level of nose plotted over input image, showing noticeable valleys at face’s extremities. (Observation: y-axis orientation is top-down).  (see subsection 2.5)
