A 3 D-polar Coordinate Colour Representation Suitable for Image Analysis

  title={A 3 D-polar Coordinate Colour Representation Suitable for Image Analysis},
  author={Allan Hanbury and J. Serra},
The processing and analysis of colour images has become an important area of study and application. The representation of the RGB colour space in 3D-polar coordinates (hue, saturation and brightness) can sometimes simplify this task by revealing characteristics not visible in the rectangular coordinate representation. The literature describes many such spaces (HLS, HSV, etc.), but many of them, having been developed for computer graphics applications, are unsuited to image processing and… CONTINUE READING
