Title: Shape feature extraction and description based on tensor scale
Author: Andalo, FA

Abstract: Tensor scale is a morphometric parameter that unifies the representation of local structure thickness, orientation, and anisotropy, which can be used in several computer vision and image processing tasks. In this article, we exploit this concept for binary images and propose a shape salience detector and a shape descriptor-Tensor Scale Descriptor with Influence Zones. It also introduces a robust method to compute tensor scale, using a graph-based approach-the Image Foresting Transform. Experimental results are provided, showing the effectiveness of the proposed methods, when compared to other relevant methods, such as Beam Angle Statistics and Contour Salience Descriptor. with regard to their use in content-based image retrieval tasks.
