Feature extraction metric calculation for image classification

2 views (last 30 days)
I am trying to classify histological images using the bag of features method. In the exampleBagOfFeaturesExtractor the variance is used or the detection metric if a feature detector was used for point selection. I am using different feature extraction techniques and my question is how can I choose which metric(s) to use after the feature extraction.
Another similar question. when I extracted both BRISK and SURF features, I used the normalized variance as a feature metric because the variances from the BRISK features were a lot bigger than the SURFs so basically only the BRISKs were taken into account later at the classification. Was that correct?

This is strange... You should not have been able to use BRISK descriptors with bagOfFeatures at all. BRISK descriptors are binary bit strings, which cannot not be clustered using K-means.

Thank you very much for clarifying this. In the case I want to combine more than one type of features is what I did with the variance metric correct?
