Detailed Description

struct returned by cv::moments

The spatial moments \(\texttt{Moments::m}_{ji}\) are computed as:

\[\texttt{m} _{ji}= \sum _{x,y} \left ( \texttt{array} (x,y) \cdot x^j \cdot y^i \right )\]

The central moments \(\texttt{Moments::mu}_{ji}\) are computed as:

\[\texttt{mu} _{ji}= \sum _{x,y} \left ( \texttt{array} (x,y) \cdot (x - \bar{x} )^j \cdot (y - \bar{y} )^i \right )\]

where \((\bar{x}, \bar{y})\) is the mass center:

\[\bar{x} = \frac{\texttt{m}_{10}}{\texttt{m}_{00}} , \; \bar{y} = \frac{\texttt{m}_{01}}{\texttt{m}_{00}}\]

The normalized central moments \(\texttt{Moments::nu}_{ij}\) are computed as:

\[\texttt{nu} _{ji}= \frac{\texttt{mu}_{ji}}{\texttt{m}_{00}^{(i+j)/2+1}} .\]

\(\texttt{mu}_{00}=\texttt{m}_{00}\), \(\texttt{nu}_{00}=1\) \(\texttt{nu}_{10}=\texttt{mu}_{10}=\texttt{mu}_{01}=\texttt{mu}_{10}=0\) , hence the values are not stored.

The moments of a contour are defined in the same way but computed using the Green's formula (see So, due to a limited raster resolution, the moments computed for a contour are slightly different from the moments computed for the same rasterized contour.

Since the contour moments are computed using Green formula, you may get seemingly odd results for contours with self-intersections, e.g. a zero area (m00) for butterfly-shaped contours.
