# HOG descriptor for image processing

I did not find in Mathematica a function for Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) descriptors.

Is there any similar function? Do you have an implementation you are willing to share?

How far have you got with your implementation, ImageConvolve might be a good place to start? –  image_doctor Dec 6 '12 at 1:27

Compute the histogram of oriented gradient (HOG) for an image, where each pixel casts a vote weighted by its gradient magnitude in the bin corresponding to its local orientation:

Yes, this implementation is a bit crude but conveys the idea. –  Matthias Odisio Dec 13 '12 at 16:08
