A new feature-based approach to automated image-to-image registration is presented. The characteristic of this approach is that it combines an invariant-moment shape descriptor with improved chain-code matching to establish correspondences between the potentially matched regions detected from the two images. It is robust in that it overcomes the difficulties of control-point correspondence by matching the images both in the feature space, using the principle of minimum distance classifier…
