Other Resouces

The method has been integrated into OpenCV library (see xfeatures2d.matchGMS).

More experiments are shown in FM-Bench.

1.OpenCV 3.0 or later (for ORB features, necessary)

2.cudafeatures2d module(for gpu nearest neighbor, optional)

3.OpenCV xfeatures2D moudle (if using the opencv built-in GMS function) 

C++ Example:

See src/demo.cpp

Python Example:

Go to "python" folder. Run "python3". 
(You need install opencv_contrib by "pip install opencv-contrib-python")

Matlab Example:

1. Go to "matlab" folder. Compile the code with OpenCV ('Compile.m'), and run 'demo.m'.

External Examples:

OpenCV C++ demo and Mexopencv example

Tuning Parameters:

In src/demo.cpp
	1.	#define USE_GPU" (need cudafeatures2d module) 
			using cpu mode by commenting it.
	2.	We suggest using SIFT features for accuracy, and using ORB features for speed.

In gms_matcher.h
	2.	#define THRESH_FACTOR 6		
			Set it higher for more input matches, and lower for the fewer input matches.
			Often 6 for ORB all matches, and 4 or 3 for SIFT matches (after ratio test).
	3. 	int GetInlierMask(vector<bool> &vbInliers, bool WithScale = false, bool WithRotation = false)
			Set WithScale to be true for wide-baseline matching and false for video matching.
			Set WithRotation to be true if images have significant reative rotations.
