Maximally Stable Extremal Regions (MSER)
Andrea Vedaldi

mser.h implements the Maximally Stable Extremal Regions (MSER) local feature detector of [19] . This detector extracts as features the connected components of the level sets of the input intensity image. Among all such regions, the ones that are locally maximally stable are selected. MSERs are affine co-variant, as well as largely co-variant to generic diffeomorphic transformations.

See Getting started with the MSER detector for an introduction on how to use the detector from the C API. For further details refer to:
