Comparison of Binary Images based on Jaccard Measure using Symmetry Information

Abstract

Method of comparing binary raster images using information about the axes of symmetry of the shapes is proposed, which will allow to take into account the translation, rotation and scaling of a pair of images. The symmetry axis of the figure is searched by one of the previously developed methods: based on the skeleton representation of the figure (Kushnir et al., 2016), the adjustment of the skeleton axis or exhaustive search (Kushnir et al., 2019). Jaccard measure is used as a measure of similarity. Three comparison algorithms were developed. The paper demonstrates that using information about the symmetry of the shapes with simple principle of comparison as the Jaccard measure allows to obtain significant results. The possibility of using this approach for image classification is also investigated. The algorithms were experimentally studied on the “Flavia” and “Butterflies” datasets.
