  title={10 Contour Extraction and Compression-Selected Topics},
  author={Andrzej Dziech},
The subject of this chapter is to describe selected topics on contour extraction, approximation and compression in spatial domain. Contours are treated as important image structure required in many applications, for example in analysis of medical image, computer vision, robot guidance, pattern recognition etc. Contour compression plays important role in many practical tasks associated with contour and image processing. The main approach solving the problem of contour compression is based on… CONTINUE READING
