A problem often encountered with multiresolution segmentation algorithms is that small or thin features of an object become lost. This is particularly evident in linked-pyramid structures and a method is required to restore these features. This paper shows that simple adaptive isotropic and non-isotropic filtering based on the inter-region signal-to-noise ratio can be used to iteratively re-establish the lost features. It is also shown that boundary placement is also improved and a balance… CONTINUE READING
