<p><b>Abstract</b>—A new method, the <it>nearest feature line (NFL)</it> method, is used in image classification and retrieval and its performance is evaluated and compared with other methods by extensive experiments. The NFL method is demonstrated to make efficient use of knowledge about multiple prototypes of a class to represent that class.</p>
