Class Information
Number: 382/215
Name: Image analysis > Pattern recognition > Template matching (e.g., specific devices that determine the best match) > Using dynamic programming or elastic templates (e.g., warping)
Description: Subject matter wherein an image signal is deformed to optimally match another image signal for comparison in time or space, such as a template being geometrically distorted to achieve geometric conformity with another template.
