Paper Abstract

Frequently in image processing an unknown image is identified by matching features from the image to features of known images. One method of doing this is to compute a distance measure between the features of the two images. This measure indicates the dissimilarity between the images. This distance measure is computed for each of a large set of different known images. The process of exhaustively locating the known image with the minimum distance, and therefore the best match is called nearest neighbor matching.
