LAP Lambert Academic Publishing The internet and the advances in image acquisition and storage technology have led to tremendous growth in significantly large and detailed image databases (the World Wide Web is regarded as the largest global image repository). By analyzing these images the human users could obtain much more useful information. Image mining is a tool to analyze the images that have the same subject by dealing with the extraction of implicit knowledge, image data relationships, or other patterns not explicitly stored in the images. This book proposes a system for mining the images by a proposed association rule algorithm which will consider the recurrence of objects in the unique image in addition to the traditional consideration of objects recurrent in a collection of images.
