We have recently proposed a scale-adaptive algorithm for reliable edge detection and blur estimation. The algorithm produces a contour code which consists of estimates of position, brightness, contrast and blur for each edge point in the image. Here we address two questions: 1. Can scale adaptation be used to achieve precise localization of blurred edges? 2. How much of the perceptual content of an image is carried by the 1-D contour code? We report an efficient algorithm for subpixel… CONTINUE READING
