Shape Matching and Object Recognition Using Shape Contexts

  title={Shape Matching and Object Recognition Using Shape Contexts},
  author={Serge J. Belongie and Jitendra Malik and Jan Puzicha},
  journal={IEEE Trans. Pattern Anal. Mach. Intell.},
ÐWe present a novel approach to measuring similarity between shapes and exploit it for object recognition. In our framework, the measurement of similarity is preceded by 1) solving for correspondences between points on the two shapes, 2) using the correspondences to estimate an aligning transform. In order to solve the correspondence problem, we attach a descriptor, the shape context, to each point. The shape context at a reference point captures the distribution of the remaining points… CONTINUE READING
