Finding correspondences among objects in different images is a critical problem in computer vision. Even good correspondence procedures can fail, however, when faced with deformations, occlusions, and differences in lighting and zoom levels across images. We present a methodology for augmenting correspondence matching algorithms with a means for triaging the focus of attention and effort in assisting the automated matching. For guiding the mix of human and automated initiatives, we introduce a measure of the expected value of resolving correspondence uncertainties. We explore the value of the approach with experiments on benchmark data.
