Most morphological operators use a unique structuring element, possibly at different scales, to describe an object. In addition, morphological algorithms are often restricted to 1D structuring elements, combinations of 1D elements, or isotropic structuring elements (like circles), because of the lack of methods directly applicable to arbitrary shaped 2D structuring elements. While these descriptors have proved useful in the past, we propose an alternative that uses the list of maximal… CONTINUE READING
