Recently, near-infrared to visible light facial image matching is gaining popularity, especially for low-light and night-time surveillance scenarios. Unlike most of the work in literature, we assume that the near-infrared probe images have low-resolution in addition to uncontrolled pose and expression, which is due to the large distance of the person from the camera. To address this very challenging problem, we propose a re-ranking strategy which takes into account the relation of both the probe and gallery with a set of reference images. This can be used as an add-on to any existing algorithm. We apply it with one recent dictionary learning algorithm which uses alignment of orthogonal dictionaries. We also create a benchmark for this task by evaluating some of the recent algorithms for this experimental protocol. Extensive experiments are conducted on a modified version of the CASIA NIR VIS 2.0 database to show the effectiveness of the proposed re-ranking approach.
