What do you mean by 'normalize'?

In order to build affine invariant feature descriptors in MESR regions, one must normalize the MSER regions. for details see the subsection: 3.1.2 Region Normalization in the paper of "A Performance Evaluation of Local Descriptors." IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE, VOL. 27, NO. 10, OCTOBER 2005 Thanks!

For the descriptor extraction you will need a vector<cv::Keypoint> as input.

You can set a cv::KeyPoints size and angle by using the ellipse's RotatedRect's width, height and angle. This will define the region used to compute your descriptor.

I haven't tried this myself, but I think this should work.

Thanks for your suggestion! I will try this method.
