Matching of interest points (feature points) is a basic and very essential step for many image processing applications. Depending on the accuracy of the matches, the quality of the final application is decided. There are various methods proposed to tackle the problem of correspondence matching. In this paper, a method that makes use of the textural features, mainly gray-level features with respect to a pixel’s neighborhood has been discussed for point matching with an emphasis on its use for image registration. Feature points are obtained from the images under consideration using SURF and are matched using gray-level features. Then, the false matches are removed using a graph-based approach.
