Image descriptor have been widely applied in many computer visions and image understanding applications including pattern recognition, robotic, video surveillance, camera calibration and image retrieval, etc. Invariants features are robust when apply several transformations of photometry (illumination, blur, noise, JPEG compression) and transformations of geometry (scaling, rotation, translation and viewpoint change). In this study, we present representation and matching region descriptors. Consequently, a set of region used provided by catadioptric system for evaluation of the performance. These regions are normalized by unit circle form with form and size change. In this contribution, the image descriptors of regions used is Moment's Zernike. They are most suitable invariants in omnidirectional context thanks to the polar coordinates used both omnidirectional geometry and Zernike Moments formulation. The aim is realize a robust matching between object's block by using a measure of distance between Zernike's moment descriptors for optimal similarity. Results shown clearly demonstrate the performance of our method and powerful than most important region descriptors (GLOH, SIFT, PCA-SIFT, complex moments and steerable filters) in term of the ROC curve or precision-recall criterion.
