This paper makes a rereading of two successful image segmentation approaches, the fuzzy connectedness (FC) and the watershed (WS) approaches, by analyzing both by means of the image foresting transform (IFT). This graph-based transform provides a sound framework for analyzing and implementing these methods. This paradigm allows to show the duality existing between the WS by IFT and the FC segmentation approaches. Both can be modeled by an optimal forest computation in a dual form (maximization… CONTINUE READING
