Geometric Blur for Template Matching

  title={Geometric Blur for Template Matching},
  author={Alexander C. Berg and Jitendra Malik},
We address the problem of finding point correspondences in images by way of an approach to template matching that is robust under affine distortions. This is achieved by applying “geometric blur” to both the template and the image, resulting in a fall-off in similarity that is close to linear in the norm of the distortion between the template and the image. Results in wide baseline stereo correspondence, face detection, and feature correspondence are included.
