In order to select proper seed points for triangle constrained image-matching propagation, this letter analyzes the affects of different numbers and different distributions of seed points on the image-matching results. The concept of distribution quality is introduced to quantify the distribution of seed points. An intensive experimental analysis is illustrated using two different stereo aerial images and, based on the experimental results, a seed point selection strategy for triangle constrained image-matching propagation is proposed. An automatic selection method is then introduced that gives good distribution quality for a defined number of seed points.
