Contours Matching with A Text-based Method

By Saliha Aouat Slimane Larabi

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Aug. 2013

We propose in this paper a method to match silhouettes. Silhouettes are described with a text-based representation. An iterative process is used to reduce descriptors. When the size of a little part is negligible in relation with sizes of main parts, that little part will be considered as noisy and will be suppressed from the initial textual descriptor. After the reduction process, the descriptors can be compared in order to perform the matching process.
