Dynamic point selection in image mosaicking
Author(s): Huibao Lin; Jennie Si; Glen P. Abousleman

Paper Abstract

Image mosaicking is a procedure of integrating information from a series of images to create a comprehensive view of the scene. It is typically carried out by selecting a subset of pixels from each of the individual images, matching these selected pixels from different images, and then mapping all the images onto a common image grid. The number of selected pixels is a critical parameter that affects both computational complexity and mosaicking accuracy. An image mosaicking algorithm is developed by using a novel dynamic point selection concept. The algorithm automatically determines the number of pixels to select according to the similarity of the images. Simulations show that the proposed algorithm generates mosaic accurately and efficiently.
