Simplification of Interest Point detection and usage

Current Concept

Currently, for each pair of tiles, the overlapping are is computed, and inside an interest point detection takes place.

Algorithmic description:

  • While running xuvstitch, for every tested pair of stacks (stackX, stackY), do:
    • Compute start and end points of overlapping area: range R
    • Let stackX be the stack with higher average brightness in range R
    • Compute voxel gradient magnitude in range R of stackX: gradmagX_R
    • downscale gradmagX_R by the size of the moving window: scaled_gradmagX_R
    • find the top N values and their positions in scaled_gradmagX_R: interest_points

Proposed Concept

Algorithmic description:

  • Prior to starting xuvstitch, for every stack (stackX), do:
    • Compute voxel gradient magnitude of stackX: gradmagX
    • downscale gradmagX by the size of the moving window: scaled_gradmagX

The proposed concept will require more memory than the current concept. However, repeated computation of the 'average brightness', the 'gradient magnitudes' and the downscaling is omitted.
