This paper presents a method for image classification by neural networks which uses characteristic data extracted from images. In order to extract characteristic data, image pixels are divided by a clustering method on YCrCb 3-dimensionl-color space and processed by labeling to select domains. The information extracted from the domains is characteristic data (color information, position information and area information) of the image. Another characteristic data, which is extracted by Wavelet transform, is added to the feature and a comparative experiment is conducted. Finally the validity of this technique is verified by means of computer simulations.
