Sandbox for image retrieval models and algorithms
Now the repository constains only python scripts for classical VLAD image descriptor.
See the reference papers:

- "Hervé Jégou, Florent Perronnin, Matthijs Douze, Jorge Sánchez, Patrick Pérez, Cordelia Schmid, Aggregating local image descriptors into compact codes, IEEE Trans on PAMI, 2012"

For using SIFT and SURF you have to compile and install OpenCV with OpenCV Contribs, and Python, SIFT/SURF support.
For SuperPoint local features you should to download model weights from repo MagicLeapResearch/SuperPointPretrainedNetwork.
