Abstract

We have implemented a new algorithm, called the geometric imprints method for extracting key features of a given contour. A series of points on the curve are used to find a geometric imprint set of the contour. The algorithm is based upon the assumption that an articulated human and other figures have mostly cylindrical body parts. The algorithm recursively partitions the contour based upon the cylindrical nature of human silhouettes, and a starting point. Similar topological contours are expected to produce similar geometric imprints. Thus the correspondence problem is somewhat simplified. Results of our implementation are presented.
