Template matching is an algorithm that can be used for object-detections in images.
The algorithm computes the probability to find one (or several) template images provided by the user into a larger image.
For more theoretical details, see the section Template Matching : How does it work ?.
You can find a similar implementation in KNIME in this repo.
