Paper Abstract

This paper describes a technique for matching two images containing natural terrain and tactical objects using syntactic pattern recognition. A preprocessor analyzes each image to identify potential areas of interest. Points of interest in an image are classified and a graph possessing properties of invariance is created based on these points. Classification derived grammar strings are generated for each classified graph structure. A local match analysis is performed and the best global match is constructed. A probability-of-match metric is computed in order to evaluate the global match. Examples demonstrating these steps are provided and actual FLIR image results are shown.
