  • This paper describes a method to calculate moments of arbitrary order from polygons that enclose a region of two-dimensional space. These include various and often used shape features, such as area, center of gravity, and second order moments. Contrary to most approaches, which compute these features from discrete pixel data, here they are calculated by using only the points of the enclosing polygon, which may be sub-pixel accurate. This has two main advantages. Firstly, since the precise… CONTINUE READING
