Bag-of-Words (BOW) models have recently become popular for the task of object recognition, owing to their good performance and simplicity. Much work has been proposed over the years to improve the BOW model, where the Spatial Pyramid Matching technique is the most notable. In this work, we propose three novel techniques to capture more refined spatial information between image features than that provided by the Spatial Pyramids. Our techniques demonstrate a performance gain over the Spatial Pyramid representation of the BOW model.
