This paper defines a new methodology for evaluating edge detectors through measurements on edginess maps instead of on binary edge maps as previous methodologies do. These measurements avoid possible bias introduced by the application-dependent process of generating binary edge maps from edginess maps. The features of completeness, discriminability, precision and robustness, which a general-purpose edge detector must comply with, are introduced. The R, DS, P and FAR-measurements in addition to… CONTINUE READING
