This paper presents a new method for matching line segments between
two uncalibrated wide baseline images. Most current techniques for
wide baseline matching are based on viewpoint invariant regions.
Those methods work well with highly textured scenes, but fail with
poorly textured ones. We show that such scenes can be successfully
matched using line segments.
Moreover, since line segments and regions provide complementary
information, their combined matching allows to deal with a broader range
of scenes. We generate an initial set of line segment correspondences,
and then iteratively increase their number by adding
matches consistent with the topological structure of the current ones.
Finally, a coplanar grouping stage allows to estimate the fundamental
matrix even from line segments only.
