Neural-based color image segmentation and classification using self-organizing maps

  title={Neural-based color image segmentation and classification using self-organizing maps},
  author={JANDER M OREIRA and Luciano da Fontoura Costa},
This paper presents a method for color image segmentation which uses classification to group pixels into regions. The chromaticity is used as data source for the method because it is normalized and considers only hue and saturation, excluding the luminance component. The classification is carried out by means of a self-organizing map (SOM), which is employed to obtain the main chromaticities present in the image. Then, each pixel is classified according to the identified classes. The number of… CONTINUE READING
