Orientation selection is the inference of orientation information out of images. It is one of the foundations on which other visual structures are built, since it must precede the formation of contours out of pointillist data and surfaces out of surface markings, We take a differential geometric view in defining orientation selection, and develop algorithms for actually doing it. The goal of these algorithms is formulated in mathematical terms as the inference of a vector field of tangents (to… CONTINUE READING
