### Wavelets

Fast Multiresolution Image QueryingJacobs et.al. SIGGRAPH95

Outline
• Overview / Background
• Wavelets
• 2D Image matching
• L1, L2 metrics
• Wavelet metric
• Evaluation
• Use in 3D
Image matching
• 2D analogue of 3D shape matching
What are we trying to match?
• Looking for different images of the same things?
• Different projections
• Different colors
• Looking for images that look the same?
• Look for similar shapes and colors
• Metric to discern like human eye
Wavelets
• Decompose a signal into component parts
• Fourier analysis: a signal can be represented as a (possibly infinite) sum of sine and cosine functions
• Signal becomes a set of wavelet coefficients
• Coefficients represent features of signal
Wavelets II
• Signal can be completely reconstructed from all the coefficients
• Signal can be partially reconstructed from some coefficients
Wavelets for 2D Images
• Each color plane in image is signal
• Coefficients will represent visual features in the image
• Store as many coefficients as needed
• Image compression (see next slide)
• c.f. Statistical shape descriptors
Wavelet Reconstruction

SIGGRAPH 96 Course Notes: Wavelets in Computer Graphics

Comparing Images
• Develop a metric that describes how closely two images match
• Smaller difference in metric = images more similar
Image metrics
• Comparing images Q and T, with dimensions i,j
• L1-Norm
• For each pixel in Q, calculate the difference between Q[i,j] and T[i,j]
• Add absolute value of differences of all i,j to form metric
Image metrics II
• L2-Norm
• For each pixel in Q, calculate the square of the difference between Q[i,j] and T[i,j]
• Add for all i,j, and take square root
• Better than L1?
Image metrics III
• Problems with L1 and L2
• Expensive to compute / compare: O(i*j)
• Not discriminating in cases with
• Color Shift
• Misregistration
• Noise / Dithering
• In general, not good descriptors
• c.f. D1, D2 in 3D
Wavelets as image metrics
• Capture features of images e.g. edges in coefficients
• Use Haar wavelets
• Square basis functions
• Easy to implement and compute
• Calculate coefficients, truncate, quantize
Truncation
• 128x128 image has 1282 coefficients
• Truncation = only storing largest ‘n’ coefficients
• ‘n’ ~ 40-60 depending on exact use
• Loss of that information is desirable
Quantization
• Reduce precision of wavelet magnitude
• Large +ve  +1
• Large –ve  -1
• Else  0
• Turns out this works well for matching
Wavelet metric
• Q,T are query and target image coefficients
• w is weighting function
Weighting function
• Weighting function applied to give particular pairs of coefficients different significance in comparison
• Gives ability to statistically tune the metric
• Determined experimentally from dataset (Appendix A)
• Weights expensive to calculate
• Compute fewer
• Bins to map range of i,j onto a weight
Wavelet metric II
• For i=0, j=0 value in Q and T is proportional to the average overall color
• From quantization, use ≠
Calculating coefficients
• Standard two-dimensional Haar wavelet decomposition
• Decompose each row, then decompose each column of the result
• Trivial to implement
Wavelet metric III
• Final metric is
• T[0,0]
• Sign, i and j of n largest coefficients in T
Faster Matching
• To speed up matching, use 6 arrays
• One for each combination of R,G,B,+,-
• DR+,DR-, …
• Each i,j in Dx is a list of all images with a metric coefficient in that color range, with that sign
Evaluation
• Better than L1 and L2
• Matches to ~1% of database
• Compact
• Fast to compare: similar complexity to an 8x8 pixel image L1/L2 for any resolution
• More robust
• Misregistration
• Color shifting
• Dithering
• Different resolutions
Evaluation III
• Limits
• Scaling ~1.5 times
• Rotation ~20 degrees
• Translation ~ 15% of width
Matching in 3D
• Can this be used in 3D as well
• Compares image rather than geometry
• Render 3D into voxels?
• Projection of 3D object into 2D?
• In general, other 3D specific methods probably much better
