Have Windows Vista and latest SimpleCV. I am running successfully some extractors, when starting BOF-extractor I get problem. I downloaded the cbdata.txt and the codebook.png from github and now I get the error while running BOFFeature extractor:

from SimpleCV import Image, HueHistogramFeatureExtractor, EdgeHistogramFeatureExtractor, BOFFeatureExtractor
from numpy import*

# images
bea1 = Image('/Users/Arenzky/Desktop/img_dirs/supervised/beach/beach01.jpg')
bea2 = Image('/Users/Arenzky/Desktop/img_dirs/supervised/beach/beach02.jpg')
bea3 = Image('/Users/Arenzky/Desktop/img_dirs/supervised/beach/beach03.jpg')

    hue = HueHistogramFeatureExtractor(mNBins=16)
    edge = EdgeHistogramFeatureExtractor()
    bof = BOFFeatureExtractor()

then I get the ERROR

ze) in unknown function, file C:\slave\WinInstallerMegaPack\src\opencv\modules\c

What I am doing wrong? Thanks...

This Assertion Error is generally related to the type of the image. In python bindings of OpenCV >= 2.3, it accepts only numpy.ndarray as an image. If you could post more code and exact error, it would be better.

here is the extended part of the code. As you can see images a .jpg.

Could you upload image, and other data somewhere? I'd try it and see what the error is.

This has nothing to do with the images. The problem is probably because the BOFFeature extractor doesn't have the necessary configuration files. I used to have a default one in the repo but I know xamox deleted it at one point. You should be feeding the function a path to your SimpleCV/Features/ directory. Alternatively you can train the bag of features yourself from your data set using the BOFFeatureExtractor.generate method. This should yield better results.
