Abstract: In this paper we show how the distance functions generated by neighborhood sequences provides flexibility in image processing algorithms and image database retrieval. Accordingly, we present methods for indexing and segmenting color images, where we use digital distance functions generated by neighborhood sequences to measure distance between colors. Moreover, we explain the usability of neighborhood sequences within the field of image database retrieval, to find similar images from a database for a given query image. Our approach considers special distance functions to measure the distance between feature vectors extracted from the images, which allows more flexible queries for the users.
