Comparison of the OpenCV’s feature detection algorithms


“In computer vision and image processing the concept of feature detection refers to methods that aim at computing abstractions of image information and making local decisions at every image point whether there is an image feature of a given type at that point or not. The resulting features will be subsets of the image domain, often in the form of isolated points, continuous curves or connected regions.”


Building OpenCV for iOS

This post is outdated. Current version of OpenCV supports iOS toolchain and can be build in much easier way. You are welcome to read this post for educational purposes. It's 99.9% chance that you will not be able to build OpenCV using instructions decribed here. OpenCV (Open Source Computer Vision) is a library of programming functions for real time computer vision. This library has a huge number of algorithms.OpenCV supports Windows and Linux platforms (and Android starting from 2.
