Is it possible to use ImageKeypoints[...] to calculate SIFT feature vectors at specific image coordinates?

  • $\begingroup$ ImageKeypoints[] uses SURF transform, which is often superior to SIFT. But I think you would need to code up your own SIFT feature transform. $\endgroup$ – David G. Stork Feb 21 '17 at 21:45

    $\begingroup$ A simple hack would be to extract the small patch of the image centered on the point in question, then apply ImageKeypoints[] with a threshold that returned a very large number of features, and choose the returned feature closest to the center. $\endgroup$ – David G.
