I am looking for ways to do image based search (let us say I have picture of a Harry Potter book which I want to use as input and get information such as ISBN and other details) in Android?

Are there any inbuilt services or google apis that do something like this? Recommendation for third party free/trial softwares is very welcome too.

The easiest would be to install an application that can do so!

PlinkART, one of the winners in ADC-II, does employ image based search for finding works of Art(and if my memory is not failing me, the application was written by folks who were pursuing a PhD in the aforesaid field).

A couple of years ago, Google was doing something along the same lines; they were trying to build a repository of tagged images. Not sure if they made it public though.
