Finding Line Segments by Surface Fitting to the Hough Transform

  title={Finding Line Segments by Surface Fitting to the Hough Transform},
  author={Wayne Niblack and Tai Truong},
We describe a method based on the Hough transform to compute a set of parameters that completely describe line segments. By complete, we mean the description includes the endpoints of each segment as well as the number of points along the segment, and, assuming a noise model N, the parameter(s) of N. The method involves fitting a surface locally to the Hough array, where the variables of the fit are the parameters we are looking for. In addition to providing a complete description for each… CONTINUE READING
