This paper presents a new multiscale curvature-based shape representation technique with application to curve data compression using B-spline wavelets. The evolution of the curve is implemented in the B-spline scale-space, which enjoys a number of advantages over the classical Gaussian scale-space, for instance, the availability of fast algorithms. The B-spline wavelet transforms are used to efficiently estimate the multiscale curvature functions. Based on the curvature scale-space image, we introduce a coarse-to-fine matching algorithm which automatically detects the dominant points and uses them as knots for curve interpolation
