Abstract

See full text

A method of registering images is provided which includes capturing a first original image of a scene under surveillance, capturing a second original image of the scene under surveillance, coarsely matching the first original image to the second original image to give approximate angle and offset parameters of the first original image to the second original image, and finely matching the first original image to the second original image based on the approximate angle and offset parameters of the coarsely matching step. The coarsely matching step involves applying a plurality of rotations to a reduced version of the first original image to form a rotated and reduced first original image and performing a correlation match between the rotated and reduced first original image and a reduced version of the second original image. The finely matching step employs control point matching between the first original image and the second original image using small image patches at a scale of the one of the first original image and the second original image having lower resolution.
