In this study, we develop a new shape descriptor and matching algorithm in order to find a given template shape in an edge detected image without performing boundary extraction. The shape descriptor based on Generalized Beam Angle Statistics (GBAS) defines the angles between the lines connecting each boundary point with the rest of the points, as random variable. Then, it assigns a feature vector to each point using the moments of beam angles. The proposed matching algorithm performs shape recognition by matching the feature vectors of boundary points on the template shape and the edge pixels on the image. The matching process also considers the spatial distance of the edge pixels. The experiments performed on MPEG-7 data set show that the template shapes are found succesfully on the noisy images.

Image Annotation With Semi-Supervised Clustering
Sayar, Ahmet; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2009-09-16)
Methods developed for image annotation usually make use of region clustering algorithms. Visual codebooks are generated from the region clusters of low level features. These codebooks are then, matched with the words of the text document related to the image, in various ways. In this paper, we supervise the clustering process by using three types of side information. The first one is the topic probability information obtained from the text document associated with the image. The second is the orientation an...
Coarse-to-Fine Isometric Shape Correspondence by Tracking Symmetric Flips
Sahillioğlu, Yusuf; Yemez, Y. (2013-02-01)
We address the symmetric flip problem that is inherent to multi-resolution isometric shape matching algorithms. To this effect, we extend our previous work which handles the dense isometric correspondence problem in the original 3D Euclidean space via coarse-to-fine combinatorial matching. The key idea is based on keeping track of all optimal solutions, which may be more than one due to symmetry especially at coarse levels, throughout denser levels of the shape matching process. We compare the resulting den...
3D object representation using transform and scale invariant 3D features
AKAGÜNDÜZ, Erdem; Ulusoy, İlkay (2007-10-21)
An algorithm is proposed for 3D object representation using generic 3D features which are transformation and scale invariant. Descriptive 3D features and their relations are used to construct a graphical model for the object which is later trained and then used for detection purposes. Descriptive 3D features are the fundamental structures which are extracted from the surface of the 3D scanner output. This surface is described by mean and Gaussian curvature values at every data point at various scales and a ...
Shape similarity measurement for boundary based features
Arica, N; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2005-01-01)
In this study, we propose two algorithms for measuring the distance between shape boundaries. In the algorithms, shape boundary is represented by the Beam Angle Statistics (BAS), which maps 2-D shape information into a set of 1-D functions. Firstly, we adopt Dynamic Time Warping method to develop an efficient distance calculation scheme, which is consistent with the human visual system in perceiving shape similarity. Since the starting point of the representations may differ in shapes, the best corresponden...
