Most of the image registration/matching methods are applicable to images acquired by either identical or similar sensors from various positions. Simpler techniques assume some object space relationship between sensor reference points, such as near parallel image planes, certain overlap and comparable radiometric characteristics. More robust methods allow for larger variations in image orientation and texture, such as the Scale-Invariant Feature Transformation (SIFT), a highly robust technique…

The proposed method performs image matching between stereo images for relative orientation modeling and generates a matched 3-D surface model that may reach subpixel accuracy while the absolute orientation may reach 1 pixel accuracy.
This paper presents a fully automatic methodology consisting of a radiometric correction, a geometric calibration, a robust approach for detecting reliable feature correspondences and a co-registration of 3D point cloud data and thermal information via a RANSAC-based EPnP scheme and demonstrates that it outperforms other recent approaches in terms of both accuracy and applicability.
