title = "Go with the flow : the direction-based Fr{\'e}chet distance of polygonal curves",

abstract = "We introduce a new distance measure for directed curves in R^d , called the direction-based Fr{\'e}chet distance. Like the standard Fr{\'e}chet distance, this measure optimizes over all parameterizations for a pair of curves. Unlike the Fr{\'e}chet distance, it is based on differences between the directions of movement along the curves, rather than on positional differences. Hence, the direction-based Fr{\'e}chet distance is invariant under translations and scalings. We describe efficient algorithms to compute several variants of the direction-based Fr{\'e}chet distance, and we present an applet that can be used to compare the direction-based Fr{\'e}chet distance with the traditional Fr{\'e}chet distance.",
