What SalientDescriptor-matlab can do for you

  • Provides implementation of a competitive Shape and Moment Invariant (SMI) descriptor for computer vision, biodiversity and other researchers who need to match images for identifying objects or scenes
  • Simple and scalable description and matching of salient regions in multiple structured images of the same scene or object of interest
  • Open-source code for researchers who are used to MATLAB
  • Successfully applied to automated determination weather images are from the same scene for the Oxford (VGG) and OxFrei benchmarks
  • SMI gives better results than the popular SURF descriptor on MSER regions with less computations
