Viewer-centred descriptions include only those parts of the object which are visible to the observer, as opposed to the more usual object-centred description which comprises details of the whole object. Since an image always provides a viewer-centred description in the form of a histogram of surface orientations, we have found that the object can be identified more… CONTINUE READING
