sift keypoint into json object

asked 2018-02-21 19:21:24 -0500

I am trying to send a server request with the image keypoints and descriptor as a json object... here is my code..

import cv2 
import requests
import json

imgDetail = {'keypoints': '', 'descriptor': ''}
sift = cv2.xfeatures2d.SIFT_create()

img = cv2.imread('images/query.jpg', 0)  
kp, des = sift.detectAndCompute(img, None)

des = des.tolist()

imgDetail['keypoints'] = kp  
imgDetail['descriptor'] = des

jsonDump = json.dumps(imgDetail)

resp = requests.post("http://localhost:5000", json=jsonDump, headers={'content-type': 'application/json'})

but its giving me the following error...........

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "E:/python projects/mawa/image.py", line 23, in <module>
jsonDump = json.dumps(imgDetail)
File "E:\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\json\__init__.py", line 231, in dumps
return _default_encoder.encode(obj)
File "E:\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\json\encoder.py", line 199, in encode
chunks = self.iterencode(o, _one_shot=True)
File "E:\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\json\encoder.py", line 257, in iterencode return _iterencode(o, 0)
File "E:\Programs\Python\Python36\lib\json\encoder.py", line 180, in default o.__class__.__name__)

TypeError: Object of type 'KeyPoint' is not JSON serializable

Can anyone give a solution for this. Thanks in advanced
