Retrieval and indexing in multimedia databases has been an active topic both in the Information Retrieval and com- puter vision communities for a long time. In this paper we propose a novel region based indexing and retrieval scheme for images. First we present our virtual textual description using which, images are converted to text documents con- taining keywords. Then we look at how these documents can be indexed and retrieved using modified elastic bucket tries and show that our approach is one order better than stan- dard spatial indexing approaches. We also show various operations required for dealing with complex features like relevance feedback. Finally we analyze the method compar- atively and and validate our approach.
