An accurate rule-based approach for landscapes retrieval scheme is developed to retrieve landscapes efficiently. We transfer each landscape to a color chain using only 8 rules. Afterwards, we utilize the color chains for comparing the landscapes, namely color chains comparison (CCC). We succeed in transferring the landscapes retrieval problem to the color chains comparison. In other words, we create a bridge between a content-based retrieval system and a text-based retrieval one. Thus the computational complexity is decreased significantly. Our new system offers both the advantages of the content-based landscapes retrieval system (similarity-based retrieval) and the text-based landscapes retrieval system (very rapid and mature).
