Image Stitching with OpenCV and Python

In this tutorial, you will learn how to perform image stitching using Python, OpenCV, and the cv2.createStitcher  and cv2.Stitcher_create  functions. Using today’s code you’ll be able to stitch multiple images together, creating a panorama of stitched images. Just under two years ago I published two guides on image stitching and panorama construction: Fundamentals of image […]

OpenCV panorama stitching

In today’s blog post, I’ll demonstrate how to perform image stitching and panorama construction using Python and OpenCV. Given two images, we’ll “stitch” them together to create a simple panorama, as seen in the example above. To construct our image panorama, we’ll utilize computer vision and image processing techniques such as: keypoint detection and local invariant […]

Implementing RootSIFT in Python and OpenCV

Still using the original, plain ole’ implementation of SIFT by David Lowe? Well, according to Arandjelovic and Zisserman in their 2012 paper, Three things everyone should know to improve object retrieval, you’re selling yourself (and your accuracy) short by using the original implementation. Instead, you should be utilizing a simple extension to SIFT, called RootSIFT, that can […]
