Multiscale Distance Matrix for Fast Plant Leaf Recognition

  title={Multiscale Distance Matrix for Fast Plant Leaf Recognition},
  author={Rong-Xiang Hu and Wei Jia and Haibin Ling and De-shuang Huang},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Image Processing},
In this brief, we propose a novel contour-based shape descriptor, called the multiscale distance matrix, to capture the shape geometry while being invariant to translation, rotation, scaling, and bilateral symmetry. The descriptor is further combined with a dimensionality reduction to improve its discriminative power. The proposed method avoids the time-consuming pointwise matching encountered in most of the previously used shape recognition algorithms. It is therefore fast and suitable for… CONTINUE READING
