Shape is one of the important features used in Content Based Image retrieval (CBIR) systems. The shape of the object is a binary image representing the object. They are broadly categorized into two groups: contour-based and region-based shape descriptors. An experimental comparison of a number of different shape features for CBIR is presented in this paper. The objective of this research is to determine which shape feature or combination of features is most efficient in representing the images. In this paper, we first present the comparison of individual shape features and then the comparison of combined shape features. For the experiments, publicly available image databases are used and the retrieval performance of the features is analyzed in detail. The article is concluded by stating which shape features perform well for CBIR.
