Abstract -
Image Registration (IR) occupied a dominant role in the digital Image processing in general and Image analysis in particular. Image registration is a process of transforming different sets of data into one coordinate system, and data may be from - (a) multiple photographs, (b) different sensors and both (a) & (b) vary from different (i) times, (ii) depths, and (iii) viewpoints, and thus aligning to monitor the subtle differences between two or more images. The development of IR techniques and algorithms is highly complex because it is required to find spatial correspondences among images, and have vast applications in - Computer Vision, Medical Imaging, Image Mosaicking, Biological Imaging and Brain Mapping, Remote Sensing, Military, Satellite communication, Criminology, and Optimization, etc. Image registration techniques are not only required but also essentially necessary to compare data & images obtained from different measurements based on their application requirements. Due to its high potential requirement for research, there is a need to carryout a research survey on Image Registration techniques in order to understand the phenomenon of Image Registration and its implementation methodologies. This survey emphasizes Image Registration as the most essential part of panoramic image generation & creation, where applications and uses are unimaginable for researchers longing to invent & implement alternative image registration methods from general to specific to complex applications.
