Class ClassifierKNearestNeighborsBow<T extends ImageBase<T>,​TD extends TupleDesc<TD>>

java.lang.Object
boofcv.alg.scene.ClassifierKNearestNeighborsBow<T,​TD>

public class ClassifierKNearestNeighborsBow<T extends ImageBase<T>,​TD extends TupleDesc<TD>>
extends Object

Scene classification which uses bag-of-word model and K-Nearest Neighbors. Classification data consists of a labeled set of word histograms. Each word histogram was created by 1) extracting all the features inside an image which was known to belong to a specific scene, 2) the word which best matches each feature is found and added to the histogram, and 3) the histogram is then normalized so that it adds up to one.

When classifying an image its word histogram is computed the same way. Using the just computed histogram the K-nearest neighbors to its word histogram are found in the classification data. The most frequent scene (the mode) of the k-neighbors is the selected scene type of the image being considered.
