Robust analysis of feature spaces: color image segmentation

  title={Robust analysis of feature spaces: color image segmentation},
  author={Dorin Comaniciu and Peter Meer},
A general technique for the recovery of signi cant image features is presented. The technique is based on the mean shift algorithm, a simple nonparametric procedure for estimating density gradients. Drawbacks of the current methods (including robust clustering) are avoided. Feature space of any nature can be processed, and as an example, color image segmentation is discussed. The segmentation is completely autonomous, only its class is chosen by the user. Thus, the same program can produce a… CONTINUE READING
