Constrained connectivity for hierarchical image partitioning and simplification

  title={Constrained connectivity for hierarchical image partitioning and simplification},
  author={Pierre Soille},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence},
This paper introduces an image partitioning and simplification method based on the constrained connectivity paradigm. According to this paradigm, two pixels are said to be connected if they satisfy a series of constraints defined in terms of simple measures such as the maximum gray-level differences over well-defined pixel paths and regions. The resulting connectivity relation generates a unique partition of the image definition domain. The simplification of the image is then achieved by… CONTINUE READING
