A novel method for two-dimensional curve normalization with respect to affine transformations is presented in this paper, which allows an affine-invariant curve representation to be obtained without any actual loss of information on the original curve. It can be applied as a preprocessing step to any shape representation, classification, recognition, or retrieval technique, since it effectively decouples the problem of affine-invariant description from feature extraction and pattern matching… CONTINUE READING
