Local Intensity Order Pattern for Feature Description
This paper presents a novel method for feature description based on intensity order. Specifically, a Local Intensity Order Pattern(LIOP) is proposed to encode the local ordinal information of each pixel and the overall ordinal information is used to divide the local patch into subregions which are used for accumulating the LIOPs respectively. Therefore, both local and overall intensity ordinal information of the local patch are captured by the proposed LIOP descriptor so as to make it a highly discriminative descriptor. It is shown that the proposed descriptor is not only invariant to monotonic intensity changes and image rotation but also robust to many other geometric and photometric transformations such as viewpoint change, image blur and JEPG compression. The proposed descriptor has been evaluated on the standard Oxford dataset and four additional image pairs with complex illumination changes. The experimental results show that the proposed descriptor obtains a significant impro...
