Abstract

In this paper, we propose a descriptor which is invariant to general deformations (only intensity locations change but not their value) by using Hilbert scanning. In our method, an image is converted to a 1-D sequence through Hilbert scanning at first. Then, we embed this sequence as a 1-D curve in the 2-D space. Because Hilbert scanning preserves the coherence in a 2-D image, it is easily to understand that the area under the curve is invariant to intensity location changes, naturally. Hence, we use some areas for an interest point as a deformation invariant descriptor. This descriptor can be computed in the 2-D space efficiently than other approaches where an image is embedded in the 3-D space or the dimensions of descriptors are very large. The experimental results show that our descriptor is low-complexity and superior to other approaches on interest point matching in deformation images.
