SIFT Feature Detection implementation

Copyright (C) 2004-2005, Sebastian Nowozin (nowozin@cs.tu-berlin.de)



Introduction
============

The SIFT feature detection algorithm has been invented and published by David
Lowe at the University of British Columbia. A detailed account of the complete
algorithm is available at http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~lowe/papers/ijcv03-abs.html

  The algorithm provides the capability to identify key feature points within
arbitrary images. It further extracts highly distinct information for each
such point and allows to characterize the point invariant to a number of
modifications to the image. It is invariant to contrast/brightness changes, to
rotation, scaling and partially invariant to other kinds of transformations.
The algorithm can be flexibly used to create input data for image matching,
object identification and other computer vision related algorithms.

  The use of the SIFT algorithm for automatic panorama creation has been
developed by Matthew Brown and David Lowe in their paper "Recognising
Panoramas" available at http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/papers/iccv2003.pdf and
examples of this application are available at
http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~mbrown/panorama/panorama.html

  This package provides an implementation of the SIFT algorithm and a set of
utilities to utilize the algorithm to match two or more images. As output, a
number of control points are created, which specify one and the same image
location in two images. The output is created as project file for the Hugin
panorama stitching software, which is available at http://hugin.sourceforge.net/
