A Linear Time Histogram Metric for Improved SIFT Matching

We present a new metric between histograms such as SIFT descriptors and a linear time algorithm for its computation. It is common practice to use the L2 metric for comparing SIFT descriptors. This practice assumes that SIFT bins are aligned, an assumption which is often not correct due to quantization, distortion, occlusion etc. In this paper we present a… CONTINUE READING
