Based on the homography between a multi-source image and three-dimensional (3D) measurement points, this letter proposes a novel 3D registration and integration method based on scale-invariant feature matching. The matching relationships of two-dimensional (2D) texture gray images and two-and-a-half-dimensional (2.5D) range images are constructed using the scale-invariant feature transform algorithms. Then, at least three non-collinear 3D measurement points corresponding to image feature points are used to achieve a registration relationship accurately. According to the index of overlapping images and the local 3D border search method, multi-view registration data are rapidly and accurately integrated. Experimental results on real models demonstrate that the algorithm is robust and effective.
