A ratio edge detector for speckled images based on maximum strength edge pruning

  title={A ratio edge detector for speckled images based on maximum strength edge pruning},
  author={S. S. Ganugapati and C. R. Moloney},
This paper presents an edge detection method which is well-suited to determining accurate and localized edge maps for speckled images. The Maximum Strength Edge Pruning Ratio of Averages (MSP-RoA) method is a ratiobased edge detector which makes effective use of edge orientation information in pruning candidate edge pixels. The method is compared to other speckle-specific edge detection methods. Test results of the MSP-RoA method for simulated speckled images and for airborne synthetic aperture… CONTINUE READING
