Benchmark dataset using historical images for an automated evaluation of feature matching methods
TranslatedTitle: Benchmarkdatensatz historischer Bilder für die Evaluation von Methoden zur Merkmalszuordnung
Image dataset to the submitted ISPRS GSW2019 publication "Generation of a benchmark dataset using historical photographs for an automated evaluation of different feature matching methods". This dataset contains eight triples of historical images for four different sights. Images were chosen with respect to their possible matching quality. The images show combined differences in illumination, field of view, viewpoints, blurring and slight rotation. Some of the images show building reflections in water or extreme shadowing. The images are saved after digitization in full quality as *.tif files with a maximum sidelength of 3543 Pixels. Since no inner orientation could be determined for all image triples the Trifocal Tensor is provided - calculated using Ressl's method (Ressl, 2003). Additional metadata information, copyright disclaimer and permalinks are provided in License.txt. The purpose of the dataset is the evaluation of different feature detection and matching methods using the given orientation with the Trifocal Tensor. Point transfer calculation is possible using the equation on p. 382 in Multiple View Geometry in Computer Vision (Hartley and Zisserman, 2003). Another method uses the corrected Fundamental Matrices calculated in eq. 15.8 from the Trifocal Tensor on p. 374 in Multiple View Geometry in Computer Vision (Hartley and Zisserman, 2003).
