Segmentation and Estimation of Image Region Properties through Cooperative Hierarchial Computation

  title={Segmentation and Estimation of Image Region Properties through Cooperative Hierarchial Computation},
  author={Peter J. Burt and Tsai Hong and Azriel Rosenfeld},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics},
The task of segmenting an image and that of estimating properties of image regions may be highly interdependent. The goal of segmentation is to partition the image into regions with more or less homogeneous properties; but the processes which estimate these properties should be confined within individual regions. A cooperative, iterative approach to segmentation and property estimation is defined; the results of each process at a given iteration are used to adjust the other process at the next… CONTINUE READING
