Class DescribeDenseHogFastAlg<Input extends ImageBase<Input>>


public class DescribeDenseHogFastAlg<Input extends ImageBase<Input>>
extends BaseDenseHog<Input>

A variant on the original Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) [1] in which spatial Gaussian weighting has been omitted, allowing for cell histograms to be computed only once. This results in about a two times speed up.

For a description of standard HOG see DescribeImageDenseHoG. Difference from standard HOG

  • No gaussian spatial weighting for each pixel inside a block
  • No bilinear interpolation between cell centers
