ImRelate Manual and Examples
This manual explains the ImRelate automatic image identification program written in Java. The algorithm does not use pixel fingerprints, so the method can perform image identification even if the original image was re-mastered. The output of this algorithm produces 3 probabilities:
- Similarity for color intensity (easy part!);
- Similarity probability for object locations;
- Similarity probability for object sizes (shape matching);
If the analyzed image is close to the sample image, all three probabilities are close to unity.
The algorithm attempts to detect shapes on the images, and it can be effective even if an image is rotated or resized.
