Detailed Description

Matchers of keypoint descriptors in OpenCV have wrappers with a common interface that enables you to easily switch between different algorithms solving the same problem. This section is devoted to matching descriptors that are represented as vectors in a multidimensional space. All objects that implement vector descriptor matchers inherit the DescriptorMatcher interface.
