Source code information


Build instructions are straighforward to follow, dependencies are embedded in the repository. Two executables are provided:
 - FIST: compute scale, translation and rotation between two random point-clouds (so I cannot set a replicability score of 5). Even if it runs, it is impossible to know if the computed transformation is good or not.
 - colorTransfer: I had to fix a minor bug to make it run: the input images are not located at the place the software attempts to load them. I fixed it by adding a shortcut in my filesystem:
 ~/git/spot$ ln -s Datasets/Images/ data/.
 Results are totally fine for this program.
