We propose a straightforward parameter-free method for detecting dominant points of digital curves. It uses the chain code properties of digital straight lines to compute two vectors of significance. The dominant points are derived from these vectors by a logical function (strategy). The dominant point set depends on the strategy used. Prior knowledge can easily be taken into account to guide the results. The obtained approximating polygon keeps the symmetrical nature of a shape. © 1997… CONTINUE READING
