List / Database of Features & Keypoint Detectors

Friedrich Politz
Hi,

does anyone know if there is a list or database of keypoint and feature detection algorithms with a high level description and ranking criteria?

Wikipedia as high level secondary source is clearly outdated (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feature_detection_(computer_vision)) . The PCL documentation is a great place to start from. But the problem is that the sheer range of choices makes it hard to tell which method might be the most suitable for a specific situation.

I have read so many papers during the last three years (when I started to get into CV) and the main problem I see is that there are indeed papers doing benchmarks but the criteria differs from paper to paper. Sometimes speed is important, sometimes robustness, sometimes repeatability.

So if anybody knows such a list, I'd appreciate a link :) If not: Would it be much work to integrate such an overview into the PCL documentation?
Cheers,
Fred

Fred,

We would love to have more people contribute to such an overview for the PCL documentation (or website). I think we all agree that such a compendium doesn't exist and that it would be quite useful to have.

Best,
Radu.

Hi Radu,

well, then.. I'd love to contribute to such an overview. I am currently trying to do that for my own purposes. However I really think there should be some other people to look over my notes as I am not considering myself as experienced enough. Is there a place where I can drop my notes?

Cheers,
Fred

We could start with a wiki page (on http://dev.pointclouds.org) or even a ReST document. We have a few of the latter and compile them into HTML pages that go under http://pointclouds.org/documentation/. That would give it a lot of exposure and you could point people to it. 

Here's a few examples: https://github.com/PointCloudLibrary/pcl/tree/master/doc

Best,
Radu.

Okay, I will start documenting my notes into a ReST document to work on the outline and structure. As soon I have a first version I'll make a pull request.  

I think I'll create a Wiki page as well to offer an easy access spot where everyone can add raw text chunks. Hopefully that encourages other contributors to share their knowledge. I'd be happy to see such a document growing.  
Cheers,
Fred

I added a section at the bottom. I will work on the article about features during the next week in my spare time. If anyone wants to check back from time to time and correct me, this is how you get there:
