2014-03-06 14:16:36 -0500 asked a question I'm having trouble reading YAML

I have this YAML file that I've built

items.yml:

%YAML:1.0
#items:
-
  item   : 1
  round  : true
  hc     : [50,110,40,270,330]
  detect : 
  area   : 0
-
  item   : 2
  round  : true
  hc     : [50,110,40,270,330]
  detect : SURF
  area   : 0
-
  item   : 3
  round  : false
  hc     : null
  detect : SURF
  area   : 2
...

I also have Item struct that fits to the items YAML I want to add them to vector<item> in a loop. I have read the yaml spec, and opencv docs and examples I've tried a lot to read the YAML file but every time a came across with annoying exceptions.

1. The struct it self is very sensitive more than some online YAML editors that I tried them on (tabs and whitespace), so this is how I got to this, a working non errors FileStorage, construction of the YAML file. If I need to change it please fix me.

2. The reading is somehow more complex. I've read before only yaml object:value with no loop needed But here I'm not sure how to loop this. I've saw YAML libraries solutions that get size and the main object but I failed doing it myself.

Any help would be appreciated. thanks!

When I run your code at first I've got this error: error: ‘struct cv::DMatch’ has no member named ‘empty’ but then I've noticed you wrote that you use std::vector<std::vector<dmatch>> matches

So from what you wrote here, you have a set of matches that you check only the first match!! (match[i][0]) that why you never go deep to the knn garbage I've solved it by looking at the distance as I wrote in my answer.

I've came across with thus issue also. I tried to avoid it but I was needed that cross-check. You can see the matches results:

(which give me the next error when it try to draw matches: OpenCV Error: Assertion failed (i1 >= 0 && i1 < static_cast<int>(keypoints1.size())) in drawMatches, file /home/eran/opencv-2.4.6.1/modules/features2d/src/draw.cpp, line 207)

I've solved it by removing it from my good_matches

  • imgIdx - sometimes wrong sometimes ok
  • queryIdx & trainIdx - most of times garbaged only in one side
  • distance - always somwething very small. in this case: 1.96182e-44

I added this code to min-max loop and the good_matches loop:

if (matches[i].distance < 0.00001) continue;

I hope that this number 0.00001 will catch all cases.

Or someone will fix this knn match bug :~
