Bag-Of-Words Classification of Miniature Illustrations
Abstract: In this paper a system for illuminated manuscripts images analysis is presented. In particular the bag-of-keypoints strategy, commonly adopted for object recognition, image classification and scene recognition, is applied to the classification of automatically extracted miniatures. Pictures are characterized by SURF descriptors, and a classification procedure is performed, comparing the results of Naive Bayes and histogram intersection distance measures.
