Performance Assessment of Feature Detection Algorithms: A Methodology and Case Study on Corner Detectors

Rockett, Peter (2003) Performance Assessment of Feature Detection Algorithms: A Methodology and Case Study on Corner Detectors. IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON IMAGE PROCESSING, 12 (12). pp. 1668-1676. ISSN 1057-7149

In this paper we describe a generic methodology for evaluating the labeling performance of feature detectors. We describe a method for generating a test set and apply the methodology to the performance assessment of three well-known corner detectors: the Kitchen-Rosenfeld, Paler et al. and Harris-Stephens corner detectors. The labeling deficiencies of each of these detectors is related to their discrimination ability between corners and various of the features which comprise the class of noncorners.
