Shape Representation Using a Generalized Potential Field Model

Abstract

This paper is concerned with efficient derivation of the medial axis transform of a two-dimensional polygonal region. Instead of using the shortest distance to the region border, a potential field model is used for computational efficiency. The region border is assumed to be charged and the valleys of the resulting potential field are used to estimate the… (More)
