Computing distances between large sets of SIFT descriptors is a basic step in numerous algorithms in computer vision. When the number of descriptors is large, as is often the case, computing these distances can be extremely time consuming. In this paper we propose the SIFT pack: a compact way of storing SIFT descriptors, which enables significantly faster… CONTINUE READING
